Preston have signed Norwich goalkeeper Declan Rudd on loan until the end of the season.

The England Under-21 international goes straight into North End squad for their npower League One trip to Crawley on Tuesday night.

Rudd has played three cup games for the Canaries this season, including the shock weekend FA Cup defeat to non-league Luton.

Earlier this month, North End cancelled the contract of goalkeeper Steve Simonsen by mutual consent.
