Leon Cort Extends Loan at Preston

Leon Cort's loan at Preston ran out today (New Years Eve) but both clubs have now agreed a loan extension until the 23rd January.

The centre back has impressed at Deepdale since arriving in November in his three appearances despite Preston still struggling at the foot of the Championship table.

Preston too recently sacked their manager,Darren Ferguson just two afters after a similar fate befell Brian Laws at Burnley.

It looks like both caretaker managers David Unsworth at Preston and Stuart Gray at Burnley though have finalised the new deal despite upheaval at both clubs.

There was some talk that Cort could be signed permanently in the January window but that now might be on hold while the management situation at both clubs is sorted out.

The current arrangment still allows for a permanent signing towards the end of the month if both new managers once appointed agree.

Looks like any permanent deals between the two clubs will be put on hold until both management vacancies are filled. Will be interesting to see where St Ledger finishes up and there was some talk that Preston might want to sell Andy Lonergan to raise cash. The keeper has been linked to the Clarets before and with the uncertainty over Jensen I would keep an eye on that one

Arent PNE short of funds? I wouldnt expect us to get what we paid for him, but wouldnt expect us to give him away - Would assume this would have to be a player trade involved

The rumour was player/cash with St Ledger coming t'other way unless we are prepared to make a loss on Cort.

I think they are also short on players after Ferguson Snr called back the loan players they had from Man U.
