Preston North End manager Simon Grayson has revealed that they need to sign two full-backs and a goalkeeper.
Manchester United's Sam Johnstone is Grayson's preferred goalkeeper and a number of full-backs are being considered.
"It is no secret that I am after a right-back and a left-back," Grayson told Lancashire Evening Post.
"The goalkeeper situation is one we would like resolved to but we are in Manchester United's hands for that one.
"For the right-back and left-back positions, we have a couple of players in mind for each position."
Preston signed Manchester United striker Will Keane on loan yesterday.
