Preston have signed Liverpool striker Neil Mellor on a three-year deal.
Mellor never established himself in the first team at Anfield
The injury-plagued 23-year-old has signed for an undisclosed fee and North End boss Paul Simpson is confident his new recruit will be a big success.
Simpson told the club's website: "Neil is a goalscorer and hopefully that will continue to be the case.
"He is a tremendous signing. He has had his injury problems but we are happy he is over those and it's just a case now of building up his fitness levels."
