Preston ponder move for Ricketts
Michael Ricketts
Former England striker Ricketts has Premiership experience
Preston boss Paul Simpson is considering throwing ex-England striker Michael Ricketts a career lifeline.

Ricketts, 28, has been training with the Championship side and could be offered a deal if he impresses in a reserve team game.

Simpson told his club's official website: "He's a fantastic footballer. He just let himself go a little bit and lost his fitness.

"He put a lot of weight on but he has got rid of all that."

Ricketts, whose career has gone downhill since leaving Bolton three years ago, has been without a club since being released by Southend but has been training in America.
