Preston have decided to bring Greg Cunningham back to the club for a second spell, and he will now be in contention to face Sheffield Wednesday.
North End have seen Andrew Hughes pick up another knock, whilst Josh Earl looks set to head out on loan before Monday’s transfer deadline.
Alex Neil and co dipped into the market to sign another left back, bringing Cunningham back to the club on loan until the end of the season.
The 29-year-old is out of contract at Cardiff this summer, meaning strong performances could see him land a permanent return to Deepdale.
Cunningham knows Preston well; he spent three years with the club following a 2015 move from Bristol City, racking up 111 appearances for the club.

Neil remains in charge from Cunningham’s time at the club, whilst the likes of Declan Rudd, Paul Huntington, Alan Browne, Daniel Johnson, Tom Barkhuizen and Seani Maguire are also still at the club.
There has been one big change though, as Preston have moved training ground, switching away from the old Springfields facility to the much-improved Euxton training facility purchased from Wigan Athletic.
Cunningham admitted to BBC Radio Lancashire that he has looked around the new training ground and thinks it is ‘very impressive’ compared to Preston’s old base, and is looking forward to getting started having re-joined the Lilywhites.
“I just needed to get the postcode – not to Dodney Drive anymore!” said Cunningham. “I had a nice look around, it’s very impressive, very impressive, so I’m looking forward to getting in with the boys, get training and get rolling again,” he added.
