Preston have signed Max Ehmer on loan from QPR until the end of the season.

The youngster is a central defender and has played at Yeovil earlier this campaign. Westley has said that the move was made due to Preston being light at the back with Craig Morgan not likely to return anytime soon.

Despite having Aaron Brown, Danny Devine and Chris Robertson, Westley thought he needed more central defensive cover. He even let Alex Marrow return to Palace due to an argument between the two.
