Former U.S. U-20 captain Greg Dalby is awaiting word on the issuance of a British work permit that would allow him to join Preston North End of England's League Championship (second level).

The former Notre Dame midfielder had previously had extended looks at Siena of Italy and Celtic, the Scottish champion, but he hopes to get a work permit under the "exceptional talent" rule for young players. He was taken by the Colorado Rapids in the second round of the 2007 MLS SuperDraft but has been playing recently for the Cleveland City Stars of the USL-2.

Preston, one of the favorites to win the 2008 Championship title, will be touring the West Coast in late July to play matches hosted by the Portland Timbers and Seattle Sounders of the USL-1 and against Mexico's Monterrey in Sacramento, Calif.

Other Americans to have played for Preston are U.S. internationals Brian McBride and Eddie Lewis.
