The left winger has been on loan from Sunderland since August, with an agreement for an undisclosed fee between the two clubs.

"The loan deal was until the end of the season, but we have managed to get a deal done."

The Scotsman, who has started the last 17 games for North End, including Saturday's 3-1 win at Championship leaders Wolves. And he has already netted three times in helping Preston back into the Championship play-off zone.

"The last few months have been good," he said. "I've enjoyed my time at Deepdale and I am delighted to be here for the next four-and-a-half years.

"I came to Preston to play games and I have done that.

"We have a good team and a good bunch of lads here and hopefully within the time I am here we can achieve our aim, which is to get to the Premiership."
