Preston North End midfielder John Mousinho has joined his former club Stevenage on loan for the rest of the season.
The move reunites Mousinho with ex-PNE manager Graham Westley who brought him to Deepdale from Boro in the summer of 2012 on a Bosman.
Mousinho, who Westley appointed as skipper last season, has struggled with injury and illness during his time at North End.
He joined Gillingham on loan in November but his stay there was cut short by a hamstring injury.
The 27-year-old is out of contract in the summer and this loan move effectively brings to an end his time with the Lilywhites.
Mousinho’s loan completed North End’s business on transfer deadline day, the club having secured the services of Bolton Wanderers striker Craig Davies earlier on Friday.
Davies, 28, has joined on loan until the end of the season.
