Preston have signed American international Eddie Lewis from Fulham, subject to a medical.

Lewis helped the USA to the quarter-finals at the World Cup in South Korea and Japan and joins manager Craig Brown's side for an undisclosed fee.

The left winger moved to Fulham for 1m from American Major League Soccer side San Jose Earthquakes and was former Cottagers manager Paul Bracewell's last signing.

The 28-year-old has agreed a three-year deal with the Deepdale outfit.

"I am very pleased about the signing because Eddie is a player that Craig Brown recognised as someone he wanted to bring here when he first arrived at the club," chairman Derek Shaw told the club's official website.

"It has taken a while to complete, which may lead to some criticism from the fans, but we feel that we have got the deal that we wanted.
