Preston, Peterborough, Huddersfield lining up bids for prolific 20/21 ace

Preston, Peterborough and Huddersfield are keen on Accrington Stanley forward Colby Bishop, according to Football Insider.

Bishop, who came through the ranks at Notts County, failed to make the step-up from youth team football at Meadow Lane, subsequently dropping into non-league with Worcester City and Boston United.

But the 24-year-old has worked his way back up the ladder, and after impressing for Leamington in the National League North, Accrington took a punt on the striker in the summer of 2019.

Bishop has since been a key player for Stanley, scoring 10 goals in 27 League One games in his first season at the club, as well as netting 12 goals in 45 games in all competitions last season.

Bishop, though, only has a year left on his deal at the Crown Ground and is alerting interest from a trio of Championship sides, however Accrington to have a 12-month extension option in his contract.

According to Football Insider, Preston, Peterborough and Huddersfield are lining up bids for the powerful forward.

The Verdict

This strikes me as a typical Preston North End and Peterborough United signing.

In recent years, the two sides, particularly Peterborough, have dipped into a league or two below them for the new, up and coming talent.

Bishop deserves credit for the way he has picked himself up and worked hard since being let go by Notts County, and he more than deserves his chance to test himself in the Championship.

Preston are in need of a new striker, and for me, he’d be a perfect fit for them.
