Preston North End have taken Fulham striker Eddie Johnson on loan until the end of the season.

The 26-year-old United States international is the third striker to join the club this month, along with Leon Clarke and Nathan Ellington.

"He has been known for his goalscoring at many levels," Preston boss Phil Brown told the club website.

Brown also confirmed that Blackburn midfielder Amine Linganzi will remain on loan until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old Algerian returned to Rovers after hobbling off 48 minutes into his debut in the 1-1 draw against Leicester City two weeks ago.

But, although not expected to be fit to return to action for another month, Brown was keen for him to see out the season at Deepdale.

"I'm keen to keep him. I see him as an important player," said Brown.

"Amine is currently undergoing his rehabilitation with the Blackburn Rovers physios.

"We anticipate that he could be back with the squad in around one month."
