Ireland defender Greg Cunningham returns on loan to Preston

Republic of Ireland defender Greg Cunningham says he has "unfinished business" at Preston after rejoining the club on loan for the rest of the season. 

The 29-year-old has been allowed to move back to Deepdale by new Cardiff boss Mick McCarthy after a spell on the fringes of the first-team in the Welsh capital.

"I am delighted to be back and I am really looking forward to the second half of the season," the Galway native told Preston's club website.

"There is unfinished business. It has probably been the best time of my career at this club and I want to get back to those times again, get playing games and repay the club."

Preston are currently six-points off the playoff places in the SkyBet Championship and manager Alex Neill is hoping that Cunningham's arrival will boost their promotion hopes.

"What he will add is experience, grit, determination, be a good role model for the younger players and an understanding of what it takes to be successful at this level.

"He is a really good lad. We know what we are getting when he comes in. All of that ticked all the right boxes for us and I think it will be a strong bit of business."
