Preston North End have signed veteran striker Kevin Davies on a two-year deal, the Mail Online understands.
The 36 year old, who was released by Bolton Wanderers after ten years at the club, has been handed the number 9 shirt ahead of the new League One season, as Preston look to secure a return to the Championship after being relegated in 2011.
In 2010, Davies became England’s oldest debutant in over sixty years after winning his one and only cap against Montenegro.
During his decade with the Trotters, he made over 350 appearances, scoring 84 times, and was named captain in January 2009. He is set to be handed a testimonial next summer.
He began his career with Chesterfield, before securing a move to Southampton in 1998.
A big money transfer to Blackburn Rovers followed, though he was back at the Saints three years later – eventually moving to Bolton in 2003.
