Daniel Iversen excelled in his loan spell with Preston North End last season. Understandably the club made it a priority to bring him back to compete with a fit again Declan Rudd.
Lancs Live have now reported that a deal has been agreed to bring the Dane to Deepdale for the whole of next season. Leicester City are happy to let him go and get more experience, whilst Iversen enjoyed his time at the club and is keen to come back.
The Foxes currently have two ‘keepers on international duty at Euro 2020 in Kasper Schmeichel and Danny Ward, so Iversen will remain at the club for the first part of pre-season, and is expected to link up with Preston at the back end of July.
The 23-year-old still has four years left on his contract with Leicester City, so a permanent deal would cost a lot of money at this stage, but another year at Deepdale could convince the goalkeeper that his long-term future lies with North End.
Iversen won plenty of points on his own last season, with some brilliant saves, and the defence looks a lot stronger with him behind. Declan Rudd will provide a solid understudy as well, which is something Preston have lacked in recent years.
Other loan signings Liam Lindsay and Sepp van den Berg also are thought to be on the club’s radar to bring back for another spell at the club.
The verbal agreement is a huge positive for Preston and their summer transfer business. Let’s hope things go smoothly and the move is completed without any bumps in the road.
