Preston North End have confirmed that striker Connor Wickham has left the club after his short-term contract expired.
He had previously been at Crystal Palace in the summer, where he had spent the previous six years.
Connor had joined North End in September on a short-term deal until the 13th January 2022, after impressing in training. However, he suffered a serious hamstring injury later that month which limited his game time to just two appearances for the Lancashire club.
The 28-year-old has been completing his rehab at Euxton in recent months but has now been released following the end of his contract.
