Preston boss Alan Irvine has played down speculation of an audacious move for former Manchester City midfielder Dietmar Hamann.

Irvine is eager to strengthen his midfield after selling Paul McKenna to Nottingham Forest and Simon Whaley to Norwich, and the Scot has been linked with free agent Hamann.

"We are linked with a number of players. We were linked with Didi Hamann and that was quite simply a phonecall from an agent," he told the club's official website. "We are working away trying to see what we can do, it has to be within our means."
