Pearson welcomes ex-Man Utd pal Harrop to Preston

Ben Pearson is delighted with Preston North End's swoop for Manchester United midfielder Josh Harrop.

Pearson came through at United with Harrop.

He told pnefc.co.uk: “I've known Josh now for 12 to 15 years; he was a year below me when I was at Manchester United. We played in the same youth team and in the reserves - so I've played with him a lot - I know him well and I know him well off the field as well.

“He's a good lad, a good player and a big character in the changing room. He knows what it's about playing at this level - he knows he needs to leave now to get proper game time.

“He'll be hoping to bed in with the squad now and I think he'll be a real asset. He's got good quality with the ball and without the ball, he works hard and he'll give his all."
