Preston North End have loaned young striker Jack Ryan to Southport.

The 19-year-old is expected to make his debut for the Sandgrounders in Saturday’s FA Cup tie at Salford City.

Ryan had been on loan at Morecambe but was recalled a few days early on Thursday to allow the switch to Southport to go through.

He struggled to make an impact with the Shrimps, starting one game and making four appearances from the bench.

The youth loan for Ryan runs until early January.

Earlier this week, PNE recalled defender Ben Davies from a loan spell at Southport.
