Speaking ahead of Saturday’s visit of Cambridge, he said: “You never say never in football.

"I’m still with Preston and have a few years there but football is a mad sport, there’s no reason it couldn’t happen.”

Storey is under contract at Deepdale until 2025 and would likely command a transfer fee.

Asked about his interest in the player, Moore replied: “It’s hard for me to discuss that because obviously he’s not our player. He’s under contract at another club.

"What we are delighted with is at the moment it’s been a perfect fit in terms of Jordan wanting to play first-team football at a football club with our stature and us giving him a platform to show that.

"He has shown a level of quality over the weeks and a consistency.

"His performances have been getting stronger and stronger and because of the level of games he’s been playing he will get even more.

"We are delighted to have him here on loan. We are really grateful to Preston for letting us have him.”
