Police arrested seven footballers on Thursday, and rearrested a further six, in connection to alleged bribery and money-laundering.
All the men - aged between 18 and 30 - are from Football League clubs and are being interviewed at police stations across the country, according to the NCA.
Preston said in a statement: "In response to media enquiries received, Preston North End Football Club can confirm that today, 3rd April 2014, the club has been contacted by the National Crime Agency in relation to a wide ranging investigation into 'spot fixing' in football.
"There are no suggestions that any offences that might have occurred involved match fixing.
"None of our employees have been charged with any offence at this time and until or unless this position changes we will be taking no further action nor making any further comment.
"All of our contracted employees are available for selection by the manager."
The Football Association and Football League are continuing to help police with their enquiries.
Preston released a second statement on Friday morning after the names of the players involved in the investigation appeared in a national newspaper.
The League One club said: "We are disappointed that individual player names are in the public domain given that none of these individuals have been charged with any offence.
"Having had time to meet with all the individuals concerned we reiterate our position that all players will remain available for selection by the manager and that until or unless the current situation changes it will be business as usual."
