Preston North End have made their third signing of the January transfer window, signing Leicester City goalkeeper Daniel Iversen on loan for the rest of the season.
The Danish international, 23, has worked with Preston North End goalkeeping coach Mike Pollitt before, at Rotherham United, where he spent the 2019/20 season on loan, making 38 appearances in their promotion-winning campaign.
The stopper, who has played for all the Danish youth international age groups, culminating in his first senior call up in September last year, spent the first half of this season on loan in the Belgian top flight with OH Leuven, but returned to the Foxes in the new year.
The arrival of Daniel comes after Lilywhites No.1 Declan Rudd picked up an injury in training, as manager Alex Neil explained: “We are really pleased to get this done and we have set off really well in this transfer window, in terms of getting our business done early and trying to find the gaps that are absolutely necessary in the squad.
“With the news that Declan is going to be out for a period, we felt it was only right and important that we covered that position off.
“We know what we are getting; young, enthusiastic, played at a good level, played international football for his country, so I think he will be a great addition.”
Daniel, who will take the No.22 shirt, said: “I cannot wait to start. Hopefully I can come and play some games for the last five months of the season. I am looking to get some games in and help the team.
“I cannot wait to show the staff that I want to play and hopefully I will be close to the team.”
