Manchester United striker Joshua King has joined Preston on a three-month loan deal.

Sir Alex Ferguson has sent the Norwegian teenager to Deepdale in order to receive more first-team opportunities and he will link up with fellow United loanee Matty James who is on season-long loan with Darren Ferguson's men.

Preston boss Ferguson told his club's official website: "He's quick, he's strong, he's a good size and he's a tremendous prospect and we are really looking forward to working with him."

The 18-year-old made just one substitute appearance since moving to Old Trafford from VĂ¥lerenga in 2008.
