Skysports.com understands Preston are lining up a loan swoop for Norwich defender Steven Smith.

Brown: Wants new left-back

The left-back was close to a permanent move to Aberdeen after spending the second half of the season on loan at the Scottish club.

Craig Brown, though, feared he would be priced out of a deal and Preston are ready to take advantage.

Preston manager Phil Brown is eager to strengthen his team after a disappointing start to the season.

The former Championship club suffered a 4-2 defeat against Colchester on the first day of the League One season and needed two late goals to get past Crewe in the Carling Cup on Tuesday night.
