Preston North End have agreed a deal to sign Tottenham's Bongani Khumalo, skysports.com understands.
Khumalo joined Spurs in January from Supersport United for £1.5million, after he impressed during a trial spell.
The 24-year-old central defender has yet to make his Spurs debut and Harry Redknapp has agreed to send him out on loan.
The South African international is to join Preston's battle against the drop from the Championship and will spend the rest of the season at Deepdale.
With no games this weekend in the Championship, Khumalo should make his debut against Swansea early next month.
