Former Preston defender Matt Hill has admitted he is surprised to have left the Championship club.

The 27-year-old joined Wolves on the final day of the transfer window and told BBC Radio Lancashire the move had come out of the blue.

"I haven't really had time to let it all sink in but these things happen and you've got to move on."

"As much as I've enjoyed my time at Preston there is an opportunity to play for Wolves and it's a new chapter."

Hill joined Preston from Bristol City for 100,000 in January 2005.

And the full-back, who was voted player-of-the-season during his spell at Deepdale, said he had enjoyed every minute of his time with the club.

"From the first day I came in I had a great reception from the fans.

"They've taken to me as much as I've taken to them and unfortunately it's come to an end."
