Woodman joins Preston on permanent deal

Written by Tom Easterby

Goalkeeper Freddie Woodman has completed a permanent move to Championship side Preston North End.

The 25-year-old leaves St. James' Park to join the Lilywhites for an undisclosed fee, bringing an end to his nine-year spell on Tyneside.

Woodman joined Newcastle United as a teenager in 2013 having spent his formative years at Crystal Palace, and subsequently spent time out on loan at six different clubs - Hartlepool United, Crawley Town, Kilmarnock, Aberdeen, Swansea City and AFC Bournemouth.

He represented England from under-16 to under-21 level, winning the Under-17 European Championships in 2014 before lifting the Under-20 World Cup - and the tournament's Golden Glove award - three years later.

The Croydon-born stopper impressed during his temporary spells away from United, winning the Championship's Golden Glove prize in recognition of his 20 clean sheets for Swansea during the 2020/21 campaign, before making his Premier League debut for the Magpies against West Ham United on the opening day of last season.

In all, Woodman made nine appearances for Newcastle and will now link up with Ryan Lowe's men, who finished 13th in the second tier last term.

Everyone at Newcastle United wishes Freddie the best of luck for the future.
