Loan players could be in line for return to Preston North End next season
Preston North End will look at trying to get longer stays at Deepdale for their loan players.
The Lilywhites leaned heavily on the loan market in January, initially seven of their eight winter signings being loan deals.
That number was whittled down to five, with Ched Evans and Greg Cunningham turning their loans into permanent deals.
North End have Daniel Iversen, Sepp van den Berg, Liam Lindsay, Anthony Gordon and Jayson Molumby on loan.
All could conceivably be targets for next season and PNE will talk with the players’ parent clubs before the end of this campaign to check on their availability.
Goalkeeper Iversen has already stated he would like to go out on loan next season to continue his development, with him having Kasper Schmeichel and Danny Ward ahead of him at Leicester.

A dozen unbeaten
Since losing their fist league game against Wycombe in 1993, PNE have gone unbeaten in their following 12.
They have won seven of the meetings and drawn five.
Recent history on their side
North End have lost their last two away games against Millwall, 2-1, and Cardiff City, 4-0, but haven’t lost three away games in a row since 2019.
PNE Starting XI: Iversen, van den Berg, Huntington, Storey, Hughes, Browne, Whiteman, Sinclair, Johnson, Maguire, Evans.
PNE Subs: Ripley, Lindsay, Gallagher, Rafferty, Riis, Molumby, Barkhuizen, Gordon, Potts.
Andrew Hughes has come in this afternoon for Greg Cunningham who misses out with a knock, but against a physical and direct side in Wycombe, it could work well for PNE.
They’re going to have to stand up to a tough test in the air and the added height of the Welshman could be beneficial.
Pick up where left off
Ched Evans has scored in his last two appearances against Wycombe, both goals coming in last season’s League One play-offs.
Evans scored both at Highbury and at Adams Park for Fleetwood as Gareth Ainsworth’s men secured a place at Wembley.
