Grayson keen to keep Beckford

Preston are preparing to face Swindon Town in the play-off final at Wembley this weekend, where Beckford is again expected to play a major role. He is currently on loan at Preston and is about to be released by parent club Bolton.

Grayson said: “We’ll sort all the contracts out of players who are up for renewals or on loan from other clubs once we’ve got the Wembley game out the way.

“We’ve obviously put lists together for plan A and plan B. But the one thing you’ll say about Jermaine is he loves being here. He’s played a big part in the success but he’s also enjoying working with me and Glynn (Snodin).

“We like to think we’ve got the best out of him, he’s a happy lad, so let’s hope we can make a decision easier by getting into the Championship.”

Meanwhile, Kevin Davies, who is out of contract at Deepdale this summer, has confirmed he wants to play on for another year, whether that is at Preston or elsewhere.

He says he has had offers to play in India but will wait until after Sunday’s play-off final to assess all his options.

He told Sky Sports News HQ: “We are due to sit down with the manager. If it’s a ‘Thanks and we we wish you well’ then so be it, that’s fine. But if they want me to stay and do another year and maybe do some coaching, then we will have to see.

“At the start of the season I thought this would be my last year, but now I feel I can do another year playing. We will just have to see what offers come in.”   

Davies, 38, made his professional debut 22 years ago and has made 70 aappearences for North End since joining on a two-year deal in July 2013.
