Preston North End have agreed a deal to sign former Ipswich Town goalkeeper Michael Crowe on a two-year deal from the beginning of July.
The 22-year-old was called up to the Welsh squad for the first time in March.
The London-born stopper grew up in Norway, but qualifies for Ryan Giggs’ side and was called up for the recent China Cup.
Speaking about the move, having agreed a contract until at least the summer of 2020, he told the Preston North End official website: “I am super excited to be here. Things have happened quickly. I was a bit nervous at the start of the summer that it might take a bit of time to get things finalised, but the club have come in and been good and everything has gone smoothly, so I am looking forward to getting going.
“The Championship is one of the hardest leagues in the world. There are a lot of games, a lot of tough games where it is so evenly matched, but hopefully we can push on this season, really step up and hopefully at least get into the Play-Offs.
