Ambitious Scottish Premiership club Hibernian have completed the permanent signing of Preston North End winger Daryl Horgan for an undisclosed fee according to the club’s official website.
The 26-year-old Galway-born wideman has been on Hibs boss Neil Lennon’s radar all summer and he has finally got his man.
It has been reported that Horgan has joined Hibernian on a permanent basis while the player has signed a three-year deal at Easter Road.
The Irishman started his career in his homeland with Salthill Devon before being snapped up by League of Ireland side Sligo Rovers in 2011. Horgan went on to impress in the senior game with The Bit o’ Red before enjoying successful spells with both Cork City and Dundalk.
It was during his spell with the latter where he really impressed as the big spending Irish outfit made a statement of intent with an extended adventure in the UEFA Europa League and scouts of several English clubs flocked to watch the player in action.
Horgan opted to join Sky Bet Championship club Preston North End in January 2017 but the winger has failed to make the desired impact at Deepdale and has been in and out of the side.
Hibernian manager Lennon was hoping to sign Horgan ahead of his side’s UEFA Europa League qualification campaign and while a deal could not be agreed last month, he has now successfully completed the transfer and Horgan has become a Hibee at long last.
