Chris Lucketti is set to sign for Sheffield United for a fee of £300,000 after a loan spell.
Chris Lucketti is set to sign for Sheffield United for a fee of £300,000 after a loan spell at Bramall Lane.
The Preston centre back helped Neil Warnock's side over the finishing line to secure second spot in The Championship and will be part of the squad that does battle at a higher level next term.
After arriving in March, Lucketti helped shore up the United defence and possesses the sort of qualities that Warnock admires in a defender.
The Blades boss has admitted he will look to field three central defenders in some games next season so the 34-year-old should be an important part of his plans.
Preston have already made plans to reinvest the fee by completing permanent deals for Kelvin Wilson of Notts County and Norwich City's Jason Jarrett.
Both were on loan at Deepdale and North End chairman Derek Shaw has revealed that the moves will be processed as planned on June 1.
