Preston North End are hoping to extend the loan deal of Manchester United defender Ritchie de Laet until the end of the season.

De Laet joined Preston last month and his initial stay at Deepdale is due to expire after Saturday's game against Ipswich Town.

The Belgian, who has also been on loan at Sheffield United this season, has made three appearances for Preston so far and has impressed with his versatility.

Lilywhites boss Darren Ferguson has discussed an extension for the 22-year-old and is optimistic De Laet will see out the season with the Championship club.

Ferguson told the Lancashire Evening Post: "I've already had a conversation about Ritchie and hopefully we will be extending it until the end of the season.

"He's a good player, has great pace and can play anywhere across the back four."

De Laet joined United in 2009 from Stoke City and he has made six appearances during his time with the Premier League club.
