Rudd Extends Contract & Heads Back To Preston

Rudd Extends Contract & Heads Back To Preston
Norwich City have confirmed that firstly, Declan Rudd has signed a one year contract extension that will keep the young 'keeper at Carrow Road until 2015 and secondly, that Rudd will again go to Preston from July 1st for a season long loan.

Declan finished the season on loan at PNE and played 14 times for Simon Grayson`s men in a deal which saw all parties satisfied.
"I`ve been at the club since I was eight years old so to get another contract extension is brilliant, I`m really pleased with it," Rudd told the club`s official site. "It means that I`m still around close to home and at a great club like Norwich. It went really well at Preston last year - I think we only lost two games when I was there and we were unbeaten at home. I really enjoyed it and that`s one of the main reasons why I wanted to get the contract sorted and get back there again. Working here with Dave Watson is great given the stature of coach that he is, but you need to play football. As a young goalkeeper that`s the most important thing. I`m really looking forward to the season starting."
Canaries manager, Chris Hughton is confident that a return to Preston on loan will be very beneficial - "Declan is one of our young talents so therefore for him to get the opportunity to play regular football for a season is a benefit to both him and us," he said. "He clearly made a good impression during his spell with Preston last season and we hope he can make a similar impact again."
