The 21-year-old has agreed a three-year deal with the Championship newcomers and joins Simon Grayson’s side for an undisclosed fee, having made 141 appearances for The Eagles, scoring 13 goals.

Scannell’s new manager Simon Grayson told the club’s website that the Irishman is an excellent addition to his squad.

“He is a brilliant addition. Despite his young age, he brings bags of experience.

“We have been working hard on a number of targets and hopefully we will be able to get a few more tied up over the next couple of days.

“He is an exciting, young, talented footballer who is very adaptable. He can play on either wing or just off the striker – he offers great options.

“Hopefully he will be able to fulfil his potential with us. It wasn’t that long ago that a lot of top-class clubs were taking a look at him so we are delighted to now have him among our ranks.”
