Preston North End have secured their third signing of the January transfer window, with Leicester City goalkeeper Daniel Iversen arriving.

Iversen has signed a loan deal until the end of the season, having cut short a loan spell with Leicester’s sister club OH Leuven.

He becomes Preston’s second Premier League loan signing of the week, having also signed Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Jayson Molumby.

Iversen, 23, spent last season on loan at Rotherham United, where he worked with Preston goalkeeping coach Mike Pollitt.

The pair reunite at Deepdale, with Pollitt likely recommending the Dane after Declan Rudd suffered a knee injury in training this week.

At 6ft 4in tall, Iversen is a big presence, and he has racked up 60 caps for Denmark across various age groups from Under-16 to Under-21’s.

Given that he turns 24 this summer, Iversen may well be eyeing up a permanent move to Preston if he impresses, and boss Alex Neil has praised the move.

Neil has told the club’s official website that he thinks Iversen will be a ‘great addition’, believing that his arrival was necessary after Rudd’s injury, adding that the Dane is ‘young and enthusiastic’.

“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,” said Neil.

“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,” he added.
