National League side Southport have signed Preston striker Jack Ryan on a youth loan after he was recalled from his three-month spell at Morecambe.

The 19-year-old moved to the Shrimps in August but made just five appearances, only one of them from the start.

Preston have stated the deal runs until the start of January and Ryan’s move was so he could get “more game time”. 

Paul Carden’s side currently sit 22nd in the table and face Salford City in FA Cup qualifying on Saturday.
