Preston North End have snapped up Wayne Brown on a one-month loan deal from Hull City.
Brown has made just one appearance in the Premier League this season since Hull's promotion to the top flight and that came in the 5-0 home defeat by Wigan Athletic two months ago.
The Tigers recently admitted the defender was likely to leave the club on loan and Brown has now accepted a move to injury-hit Preston.
He could make his debut against former club Watford on Tuesday night and the 31-year-old is looking forward to playing regular first-team football.
"It has been a little bit frustrating since we won promotion, after playing a key part in their promotion last year, to be not needed anymore," Brown told Preston's official website.
"It will do me good to come down and play football. The reason I am coming down to Preston is because they are a good team, they are ambitious and they want to do things and so do I.
"It's for a month at the moment, but we will see how we go.
"All I can do is come down there, play well for myself and for Preston, start getting some results and I'm sure that if I do well and the team does well then we can go from there."
