New Preston manager Alex Neil has made his first signing by bringing in full-back Darnell Fisher from relegated League One club Rotherham United for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year-old, who started his career at Celtic, has signed a three-year deal with the Championship club.

"He's perfect in the fact that he wants to try and find his way in his career. He is a determined lad," said Neil.

"He has come through Celtic's ranks, so he's used to high standards."

Fisher told the club website: "I spoke to the manager and he really sold me on the club. Everything he said to me about the club was positive.

"He has said he's going to make me a better player. It was all very quick, I got the call yesterday and we have managed to get it done by today."
