Preston North End have swooped for Stoke City midfielder Michael Tonge.

The 26-year-old joined the Potters for £2million from Sheffield United on the last day of the transfer window in September 2008.

But he has not featured in the Premier League this season, with his three appearances all coming in the Carling Cup.

Tonge, who will stay with North End until after the game at his former club Sheffield United on December 28, will go straight into the squad for Monday night's televised clash with Newcastle at Deepdale.
