Preston are finalising a deal for Shamrock Rovers striker Graham Burke.
The Championship side have been in discussions with the Hoops since making a bid of close to €300,000 for the attacker's services last week.
The Irish Independent says negotiations have continued since then and it's believed that the parties have effectively thrashed out a final agreement. The deal could be announced as soon as today.
Burke is with the Rovers squad this week preparing for Friday's league match in Limerick which is likely to be his final game for the club.
The League of Ireland then enters a mid-season break and Burke will go on holiday before linking up with his new Preston team-mates for the start of their pre-season. His transfer will formally go through on July 1.
