Preston North End midfielder Joel Byrom has joined Oldham Athletic on loan for the rest of the season.
First-team chances at PNE have been few and far between in recent months for the 27-year-old.
His last start was in October’s 2-0 defeat to Crewe and his last appearances was as a late substitute in the FA Cup win over Wycombe in December.
North End will have a 24-hour recall on Byrom once he has been at Oldham for 28 days.
He has played 41 times for Preston since joining on a Bosman from Stevenage in July 2012.
Byrom is set to make his Oldham debut against Crewe on Saturday.
