Preston defender Neal Trotman has joined League One outfit Colchester on a month's loan.
The former Oldham centre-back, 22, has recently returned to fitness with a handful of reserve-team fixtures following a long injury lay-off.
Alan Irvine is keen for Trotman to improve his match fitness and he is expected to go into Paul Lambert's squad for the trip to Leicester this weekend.
