PNE are still in the market for a couple of loan players, having brough in Troy Parrott and Alvaro Fernandez on loan from Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United respectively, but Lowe is not to be dictated to.
There will be no minimum game agreements in place should North End complete a loan deal and Lowe is clear that anyone who comes in has to fight for their spot.

He said: “We can't accept that, not one of my players that come here to be in my team are guaranteed to play. They have to earn the right to play.
"Clubs will put stuff in like loan fees and the more they play the less you have to pay. It's a catch 22 really, it's basically telling you he has to play but you have to be prepared for the sacrifice that if he doesn't you have to pay the money.
"It depends on the club, I get it it's business, they have to do what's best for their club.”
There are plenty of details to sort when bringing in a loan player, be it their wages, fees to the other club or even agents trying to get fees too.
Lowe feels that the development of the player is what should come first, rather than potential financial opportunities.
He said: “For us, we're governed by what we've got to spend. Some clubs will want full recovery on their wages, some will want half of it.
"Gone are the days where you take a player to give them experience and it doesn't cost anything. I had someone telling me that Sir Alex Ferguson just used to throw them out of the room to get them some valuable game time.
"The important thing for both sides is to make sure that the loan move is right.
"Financially, if you ask me, could the Championship, League One and League Two clubs be helped out a little bit better with the bigger hitters? Yeah, definitely.
"I always feel that when you're giving someone an opportunity to play in the Championship that is more important than the financial side, that's what the bigger clubs have to look at.”
