Keith Keane will join Crawley Town on a 93 day loan deal, effective from Friday.
Keane has featured 77 times for North End since his arrival from Luton Town in 2012, although he has struggled to break into manager Simon Grayson’s starting XI this term.
Keane can feature in cup competition for the Sussex Club but he cannot face the Lilywhites.
Crawley travel to Deepdale later this month.
Everyone associated with Preston North End would like to wish Keith all the best with Crawley Town.
