Scunthorpe United sign Preston North End's Eddie Nolan

Eddie Nolan
Nolan has won three caps for the Republic of Ireland

Scunthorpe United have taken over on-loan defender Eddie Nolan's contract until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old Republic of Ireland cap, whose Preston contract was set to expire this summer, was offered a contract by the Iron in October.

Nolan joined on a six-month loan deal in July, and has played 24 times for the Iron, after finding himself surplus to requirements at Deepdale.

The fee for the ex-Blackburn academy player's new deal is undisclosed.

"I'm delighted and I never hid the fact that I wanted Eddie to stay longer than his loan period," manager Ian Baraclough told BBC Radio Humberside.

"I always hoped we could keep him and I'm glad it's been resolved."
