Daniel Iversen Returns On Season-Long Loan

4 August 2021

Preston North End are delighted to confirm Daniel Iversen has returned to the club on a season-long loan from Leicester City.

The Danish goalkeeper spent the second half of the 2020/21 campaign at Deepdale, making 23 appearances for the Lilywhites and keeping nine clean sheets.

Daniel will take the No.12 shirt for the upcoming season and will go straight into contention for Saturday’s Championship opener against Hull City.

After completing his move, Daniel said: “I’m really excited to get it done now, it’s been a wait for a couple of weeks now, but I’m really excited to be back.

“I cannot wait to see the fans again and say thank you for all the support they gave us last season and hopefully they will do that this season also.

“I want to do the best for the club that I can do and try to do the best I can for every game and every training [session] and we will see after the season where we’re landing.”

Daniel was first brought into the fold after Declan Rudd's injury last season, but with Dec back fit, and the likes of Connor Ripley and Mathew Hudson also available, there is plenty of competition for the shirt.

Head coach Frankie McAvoy said: “We knew there would be interest in him from other teams so for the club to do the deal, I cannot thank them enough, and it’s great that Daniel will get the opportunity to be here on Saturday.

“We’re just delighted to get him back in time for the first game, and it puts our goalkeeping department in a very competitive situation.

“Dec, before he got injured, was excellent and he's done fantastically well in pre-season, so to have four good goalkeepers is excellent and I’ve got a big, big choice on Saturday and it’s one that I’m looking forward to. The most important thing is for them to learn and support each other, no matter who it is we pick.”
