Plymouth are interested in a move for Preston striker Eoin Doyle, according to the Plymouth Herald.

The experienced striker wants a move away from Championship side Preston and wants first-team football. He was heavily linked with a move to Plymouth last week but a deal went quiet, however it is a real possibility that the League One club will make a last ditch attempt to land the forward today.

Plymouth boss Derek Adams says the club are close to signing a forward on a loan deal and this could be Eoin Doyle. The Pilgrims are looking to add some final faces to their squad who were promoted from League Two last season. They have already added players like Nadir Cifci from Celtic, Aaron Taylor-Sinclair from Doncaster and Joel Grant from Exeter. They now want more deals to be done.

Doyle, 29, started his career at Shelbourne in the Republic of Ireland, before moving to Sligo Rovers and a prolific spell at Shamrock Rovers.  This earned him a move to Hibernian in Scotland, where he later moved onto Chesterfield in 2013. He scored 32 goals in 69 games for the Spirerites and Cardiff City snapped him up in 2015. However, he found adapting to the Championship hard and he was shipped out on loan to Preston, who later signed him permanently. The Irishman spent last season on loan at Portsmouth in League Two.

There is no doubt that Eoin Doyle has the potential to be a goalscorer in League One. His record for Chesterfield speaks for itself. Therefore, Plymouth fans will be excited at the prospect of signing a proven goalscorer at their level.
