Preston North End winger Michael Howard has joined Stalybridge Celtic on loan for the rest of the season.
The 19-year-old was previously on loan with Hednesford Town this campaign, scoring six goals.
Ironically, his Stalybridge debut is set to come against Hednesford in an Evo-Stik Premier League clash at Bower Fold on Saturday.
Southport-born Howard is a first-year professional at North End, having been in the club's academy since he was 11.
He spent part of last season on loan with League Of Ireland side Cork City.
