Former Preston North End player Kevin Kilbane returned to Deepdale with the BBC recently.
Now a professional sports writer he makes regular appearances as a studio pundit on the BBC One’s Match of the Day 2.
Kilbane visited Preston to speak to Simon Grayson, the clubs manager, about the hectic deadline day transfer market.
Although over for now (the window closed on 31 January) transfer deadline day can be one of the most stressful days for players, the manager, the board and agents alike.
Simon Grayson said sometimes late deals can be down to “broken fax machines, or being told the fax machine has broken!”
But why do clubs wait until the last moment to do a deal. Simon said “Dunno. The excitement of it all would be an easy answer!”
Kilbane also meets Preston chairman Peter Ridsdale and striker Kevin Davies
