Morecambe have completed the loan signing of Preston North End youngster Jack Ryan.

The 19-year-old has signed a three-month youth loan deal with The Shrimps.

The front man from Barrow spent time on loan with Stalybridge Celtic and Stockport County last season before making his Football League debut for North End.

Shrimps boss Jim Bentley said: “Jack is a young striker who we watched in pre-season and impressed.

“For a young lad he is big and brave and he did well while on loan at Stockport last season.

“He is highly rated by Preston and someone we are looking forward to working with.”

Ryan becomes the second signing of the day for Bentley after fellow striker Shaun Miller signed a one-year deal after impressing on trial.
