Paul Gallagher and Jordan Hugill have become the latest Preston players to sign new contracts with the Sky Bet Championship club.
Midfielder Gallagher has only been a permanent North End player since last summer, though that followed three loans spells at Deepdale, and his new deal runs until the summer of 2018.
Hugill, 24, now has a contract which expires the season after Gallagher's deal having celebrated Tuesday night's long-range goal against Cardiff by signing an extension with a club he has been at since 2014.
They have followed team-mates Paul Huntington, Tom Clarke, Daniel Johnson and Greg Cunningham in agreeing extensions.
Speaking about the deals, boss Simon Grayson said: "We are delighted to secure these two players on new deals, they both have a big part to play going forward and so it's another step in the right direction for us.
"Paul Gallagher comes into the bracket of the experienced players who are hoping to keep playing but also help develop the younger players so we are delighted. He plays a big part in how we play as a team and so we are delighted he has signed a new deal and it's another key player that we have secured for another year.
"Jordan has come to this football club and has kept on improving and improving and last night just typifies what he is all about. We are delighted that we've secured someone like him because he is good to work with, good around the dressing room and hopefully he will keep improving."
