Preston wait for offers for Sunderland, West Ham target Nugent

Preston boss Paul Simpson is bracing for a flood of offers for his England U21 star David Nugent.

The £7million-rated hitman will consider his future next week after starring at the European Under-21s Championship in Holland.

Sunderland, West Ham, Middlesbrough and Everton are all ready to make a bid for Nugent, 22.

Simpson said: "There have been enquiries from Premier League clubs.

"I don't want him to go, I want him to stay a Preston player.

"But, if I'm honest, I think things will start happening as soon as the Under-21s are back.

"I expect it to go crazy again but he doesn't want to think about his future until the tournament is out of the way."
