​DONE DEAL: Man City loan Barker to Preston

Manchester City youngster Brandon Barker has joined Preston North End on loan.

The 21-year-old winger will be playing for the Championship club for the rest of the season.

He was on loan at NAC Breda in the Netherlands during the 16-17 season, while he played for Hibernian in Scotland last term.

Barker told Preston's official website: "I am delighted to get the deal done, as soon as it came up I was buzzing.

"I have had a couple of successful loan spells and I am looking to build on that. Last year in Scotland I did okay and hopefully this year is the same.

"I hope I can show what I do in the games. Hopefully I can help the team as much as I can, work hard and try and give the fans what they want.

"I spoke to the manager and he did a good job of selling the club to me. He is a manager I think I can improve under; he has a young squad with some older faces and I can't wait to get going."
