Central defender,Leon Cort has become the fifth Clarets player to leave Turf Moor for a loan spell.

Today is loan deadline day and the former Stoke defender has joined local rivals, Preston North End on a month’s loan.

The 31 year old will be at Deepdale until the end of December.

Cort has struggled to make an impression this season and has made just three starts for the Clarets. He also blotted his copybook by being sent off in the home game against Reading back in October for the first time in his career. He went over 6 years without being booked or sent off in a competitive game, this record spanning over a total of 150 games for Southend, Hull, Palace, Stoke and Burnley.

Newly installed manager,Brian Laws signed Cort in January 2010 for £1.5 million pounds on a 3-and-a-half year deal.
