Daryl Horgan’s time with Preston North End has come to an end as the Deepdale outfit announced today that the former Dundalk player has departed the club.
Horgan will now ply his trade with Scottish Premier League outfit, Hibernian. The Irish international joins the Edinburgh club for an undisclosed fee and could make an appearance for Neil Lennon’s side in their clash with St Johnstone on Sunday, subject to international clearance.
Horgan joined Preston in January 2017 after impressing in the League of Ireland and he went on to make 44 appearances, scoring four goals in the next 18 months.

His last appearance for Preston came last weekend when he came on as a substitute in the win over Queens Park Rangers.
Horgan has revealed his delight at making the move north of the border.
“I am delighted to have made the move to Hibs,” Horgan told Hibernian’s official website. “I’ve spoken to the manager and am excited for his plans for the season ahead.
“Obviously the boys have started well in Europe and the league – they had a good season last year and the ambition is there to follow that up with another successful year.
“I’m ready to play and looking forward to trying to break into the team.”
Neil Lennon added: “He’s one we’ve been keen on for a long time and it’s a real coup to get him over the line.
“Daryl will give us a real threat going forward and some strength out wide – we had been looking to add in that area and I’m delighted with the options we now have.
“He has power and pace and will hopefully give us another dimension to our play in the final third.”
