Jake Jervis has joined Preston North End in League One on a month long loan spell.

The 20 year old striker has recently been on loan at Swindon Town for a couple of months where he scored five goals for the Robins, Preston are now hoping he can repeat that at Deepdale and goes into the squad for Mondays clash with Rochdale
Cretaker managers Graham Alexander and David Unsworth are looking for a goalscorer while Neil Mellor is sidelined with injury.

‘Jake is a physical lad, he has got a decent touch and a bit of pace about him,’ said Alexander.

‘He is a young lad who is hungry to come to Preston North End and prove a point.

‘We want people who see Preston North End will give players a chance to get recognition of how good they are as players and have a point to prove. I think Jake is one of them (and) if he gives the sort of commitment that he has shown to try and get here then that will do for us.’
