Wycombe have snapped up Preston goalkeeper Andrew Lonergan on loan.Wycombe Wanderers have snapped up highly-rated Preston goalkeeper Andrew Lonergan on loan.
Carlo Nash is number one at Deepdale and with Gavin Ward able to provide cover, Lonergan has been allowed to leave on a temporary basis.
The England Under-21 shot-stopper has agreed an initial month-long deal with the League Two outfit.
"He is a fantastic goalkeeping talent who has been out for a while and just needs to get a bit more match fitness so he will come back to us after a month and he'll be fitter and ready to fly," said Preston assistant David Kelly.
"We've got very good goalkeepers at the club with a lot of experience in Wardy, Nashy and Lonners but it's important for Lonners to go out and get some games to get the rustiness out of his system.
"He's going to play for a very good manager at Wycombe. I've known John Gorman for a very long time, he's got their team playing a decent way so it's a good place to go but the way they are playing he might not have a touch!"
