Buchanan was released from Bury at the end of his contract. The club had offered Buchanan a new contract, however after previous failed negotiations and period of no response from the player following a new contract offer, the club sought a replacement player and issued a statement claiming that the club would not be held to ransom over contract negotiations.
He signed for Hamilton Academical in July 2010 before moving to Tranmere Rovers in the summer of 2011. The club offered him contract terms for the 2012-13 season. Although the club reported that he and his agent had agreed a two year contract, they reported on 24 May that Preston North End had agreed a deal with them.
Buchanan made his debut for Preston on 13 August 2012 against Huddersfield Town in the first round of the League Cup. On 17 December 2013, Buchanan extended his contract with Preston for a further twelve months, thus keeping him at the club until the summer of 2015.
