Preston North End manager Phil Brown admits there is a chance he could sign Leicester City striker Martyn Waghorn on loan.
Waghorn has not started a game for the Foxes for the past two months and was an unused substitute in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Preston.
Leicester boss Sven Goran Eriksson has revealed he could be prepared to let Waghorn head out on loan once Darius Vassell returns to full fitness.
Brown discussed Waghorn with Eriksson at Deepdale at the weekend and is now waiting to see if the former Sunderland youngster will become available.
"You look at Premier League and Championship squads, and see the players who are not involved," Brown told the Evening Post.
"Where Martyn Waghorn is concerned, there was a lot of interest at this club before I arrived.
"Martyn was on the bench on Saturday, and the conversation I had with Sven after the game led me to believe that he hasn't finished shopping yet. Sven does like his strikers, so we'll see what happens.
"There is a possibility with Martyn, but a faint possibility at the moment. The communication lines are open which is important."
