Rumours are that our manager Ryan Lowe is in talks with Preston North End. I'd be annoyed if he did go as they're not really that much of a bigger club than we are. It's not likely Preston will ever (without a huge cash injection) go up from the Championship and our club has revolutionised itself under our current owner. He's supported Lowe's data analytics approach, given him an actual transfer fund, invested millions of his own money to turn our club around and make them Championship ready and it'll be a shame if Lowe doesn't see that as a proper journey. He's from the North West and his family still live up there so I wouldn't be surprised, it would be a step up and a pay rise so money will probably talk here.
£250k compensation being rumoured - it's not a lot of money considering this would probably end our season; we've made about that in the FA Cup already this year. With January close, it would probably mean a few of our players would follow him out of the door.
