With confirmation that Preston North End boss, Billy Davies, making a central midfielder a top priority, then it is no surprise that AFCB Chairman, Peter Phillips has confirmed to BBC Radio Solent that: "We've been talking to Preston for two or three days. We've agreed terms, they're now talking to Brian and putting him through a medical. If all that goes to plan, he'll become a Preston player".

Assuming that the deal goes through, that will mean that Stock would have had a Bournemouth career spanning 172 games, scoring 19 goals in that time.
