 American striker Eddie Johnson is heading to League Championship side Preston North End on the loan move for the rest of the season, sources told SBI on Monday.

Johnson has earned more playing time this season at Fulham than last season, but the loan to Preston should help him earn considerably more playing time as he heads toward the summer, when his contract will expire.

Johnson's agent, Richard Motzkin, could not be reached for comment on the move.

The loan is the latest in a series of loans Johnson has gone on while under contract with Fulham. He enjoyed moderate success during loan stints with Cardiff City and Aris FC.

What do you think of this move? Glad to see Johnson going where he will play more? Can you see him returning to MLS this summer?
