Preston have signed Denmark Under-21 international striker Emil Riis Jakobsen from Randers FC for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old, who was named Danish Superliga player of the month for September after two goals in three games, has signed a four-year contract with the Lilywhites.

Jakobsen, who was a youth-team player at Derby, told Preston’s website: “It is a dream come true for me.

“I am very confident. I have scored a lot of goals lately. Things are going well at the moment and I hope that continues.”
