Default Attaching fabric to soundboard, best glue?

I'm restoring a GEC BC 5445 which has a fabric covered sound board.

The fabric came away easily with some soapy water so I reckon it was attached with a water based glue.

To reattach it, whats the best glue to use, I was considering PVA glue which should dry out clear?

thanks
Ray

I use latex based fabric adhesive aerosol spray, but you can also get adhesive in tubes.

Wilko for example sell small (20 ml) tubes which dry clear:

Hope that helps.

Excellent, I should be able to get this locally in a fabric shop.

Many thanks David.
