Preston North End midfielder Jason Jarrett has joined League One team Oldham Athletic on loan.

The 28-year-old is eligible to play for John Sheridan's Latics team tonight against Carlisle United after signing emergency loan papers this afternoon.

The loan deal is initially for a month with the option of extending it until the end of the season.

Jarrett, who spent two months on loan at Queens Park Rangers at the end of last year, has failed to force his way into Alan Irvine's plans, as he did under previous boss Paul Simpson.
