Jayson Molumby has joined Preston North End on loan for the rest of the campaign.

Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Jayson Molumby has agreed to join Championship club Preston North End on loan until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old Republic of Ireland international has made three first team appearances this season, including his Premier League debut as a late substitute in the 2-1 win over Aston Villa.

Molumby spent last season on loan with Championship outfit Millwall, scoring once in 40 appearances.

Technical Director Dan Ashworth said, “Jayson enjoyed a really good season on loan in the Championship last year, and this move gives him another opportunity to play regular senior football.

"He has been close to our first team, and involved with a number of the squads, but we are keen for Jayson to continue his progress and benefit from regular football.

“We wish him well for the rest of the season at Deepdale, where David Weir and the club's loans department, will keep a close eye on his progress.”
