Preston North End are moving for Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck.

The Daily Mail says Preston hope to complete the loan signing of striker Welbeck from Manchester United.

It could set a trend of United's young starlets moving to Deepdale as manager Darren Ferguson aims to utilise his relationship with his father at Old Trafford.

North End will follow up their move for Welbeck by swooping for midfielder Paul Coutts from Peterborough.
