Preston become latest Championship club to declare interest in in-demand Barnsley man

Barnsley striker Kieffer Moore is wanted by Preston North End, who become the latest club to be interested in signing the big striker this summer. 

According to Alan Nixon on Twitter, the young forward is wanted by a host of Championship clubs, and Preston have now joined the race for Moore’s services, with League One Barnsley valuing their man at around £2m.

Moore has only been at Oakwell for a little over six months after making the move to the Yorkshire club from Ipswich Town following a prolific loan spell with Rotherham United at the beginning of last season.

The striker, who stands towering over six feet tall, was impressive for the Reds and formed an excellent partnership with Oli McBurnie, despite not being able to fire the Reds to Championship safety.

Moore will no doubt be torn over whether he makes a move away from the club or not having only recently signed for the South Yorkshire club, but Barnsley will be in no position to reject big offers for their man, and Preston will no doubt fancy their chances of sealing a deal.

Manager Alex Neil did a sterling job for North End last season, and will no doubt see someone like Moore as the missing piece of the jigsaw in his playoff chasing team.

Barnsley and Preston fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
