Daniel Iversen is fast becoming Preston’s dream summer signing.
The Danish goalkeeper joined on loan from Leicester City in January, arriving until the end of the campaign due to Declan Rudd’s season-ending injury.
Iversen has been outstanding in a Preston shirt, turning in consistently excellent performances to help North End push towards safety.
Iversen is now joining the likes of Sam Johnstone and Jordan Pickford when it comes to loan goalkeepers at Preston, and many would put him down as a ‘dream’ signing for the summer – whether that’s on loan or permanently.
There’s good news and bad news on that front.
Let’s start with the good news. On Thursday, Leicester confirmed they have given Danny Ward a new contract until at least 2025, meaning he will remain as Kasper Schmeichel’s backup for some time yet.
Iversen is too good to be third choice at Leicester, and at almost 24, he needs to be playing regular first-team football – something Preston can offer him.
Now for the bad news. The Sun (18/04, pp67) report that Iversen now has interest from a host of other clubs having been impressed with his displays at Preston.
It looks like the Dane will be loaned out again this summer, but whether he comes back to North End is another question.
