Hibernian are on the verge of signing Daryl Horgan from Preston North End, according to reports in Scotland.
The print edition of the Daily Record (via the Sky Sports Paper Talk page) reports that Horgan is closing in on a switch to Hibernian.
The Republic of Ireland international joined Preston in December 2016 from Dundalk – alongside team-mate Andy Boyle – and he has since played 42 games for the club.
Last season, Horgan started just two league games for Preston as he was down the pecking order in Alex Neil’s plans.
The 25-year-old scored twice and got one assist in 23 games in all competitions – although 18 of those came off the bench.
Horgan could now be heading away from Deepdale with Hibs ready to take a punt on him.
After impressing in the Irish leagues, the winger will be hoping to recapture his best form if he moves away from Preston and joins Hibernian, who are playing in the Scottish Premiership.
Things just have not quite worked out as well as Horgan and Preston would have hoped for.
With a number of top attacking stars in their ranks, game time is hard to come by for the Irishman and a move away could be for the best as he looks to resurrect his career.
Perhaps a return to England could be on the cards in a year or two if he can prove himself in Scotland.
