Preston North End’s Shane Cansdell-Sherriff has joined Sky Bet League Two outfit Burton Albion on loan.
The central defender has signed for Gary Rowett’s side up to and including the 29th December and will be available to feature for them as early as the weekend.
He will also be eligible to play for the Pirelli Stadium based club in the FA Cup – providing they are not drawn to face PNE.
Cansdell-Sherriff has made 22 first team appearances for Preston since his summer move from Shrewsbury Town in 2012.
The Aussie also featured 17 times for Rochdale over a four month loan spell at Spotland last season.
Speaking of the loan move, Lilywhites manager Simon Grayson said: “Shane has not featured a lot since he came back to us in the summer and players of his experience need to be playing regular football.
“We therefore had a conversation this week and I felt it only fair for him to go and play first team football.
“Like all the other loan deals we have entered into, we’ll assess the situation going forward come the end of it, but for now this is an excellent opportunity for him to go and play football.”
