Preston land Dundee Utd keeper Szamotulski

Preston have swooped for Dundee United goalkeeper Grzegorz Szamotulski on a free transfer.

The 31-year-old has signed a six-month contract at Deepdale after his short-term deal with Scottish Premier League side Dundee United expired and provides back-up for Andy Lonergan, with Wayne Henderson still sidelined.

Szamotulski has made 13 appearances for his country with his last coming in 2003 and comes into contention for Saturday's clash with Coventry providing he receives international clearance in time.

He told the club's official website: "I am very happy to have signed the contract. I know Preston North End are a good club in the Championship and I am happy that this club has come in for me.

"I want to play as well as possible and help the club to maintain a healthy position in the Championship and show the fans what we can do."

Chairman Derek Shaw added: "He's one we have tried to bring in over the last couple of weeks but we've finally got it done. We've had a little bit of competition from other clubs in the Championship but we are delighted to have got it done on Wednesday night."
