Preston have completed the emergency loan signing of Manchester United youngster Ritchie De Laet until December 13.
The 21-year-old, who started his career at Royal Antwerp before moving to Stoke and then United, has enjoyed loan spells with Wrexham and Sheffield United, but will now move to Deepdale.
De Laet told Preston Player: "I want some games. I am not getting them at united at the moment and, so the best thing for me is to go out on loan, get some games and help Preston.
"Hopefully, Preston will be able to help me as well going forward.
Speaking of his recent loan spell at Bramall Lane, he said: "It was a good experience. It was the first time that I went out on loan to a Championship club.
"I know how it is in the Championship now so hopefully I can help myself and help Preston."
