Preston North End winger Josh Ginnelly is set for a move to League One side Bristol Rovers as reported by the Lancashire Post.
The twenty-two-year-old has struggled to establish himself at Deepdale since his move from Walsall a year ago, making only nine appearances.
According to the report, the coaching staff at Preston are hoping a loan spell away from Deepdale will aid the attacker’s development.
The tricky wide man has a National League winners medal to his name from his spell at Lincoln in 2016/17. He’s also spent time at Tranmere, helping them to National League success in the playoffs at Wembley a year later.
Described as a ‘project’ by Alex Neil when he signed for the Lilleywhites for a fee believed to be in the region of £50,000, the former Burnley man is reported to have met with Rovers yesterday and a loan until the end of the season is expected to be announced later today.
Ginnelly has all the talent in the world but is prone to drifting in and out of games.
He can play in the Championship but needs to keeper working hard at his game to achieve that aim.
Rovers will be getting a player who can carve open a defence and score some spectacular goals if he fancies it.
