Irish Striker Eoin Doyle Leaves Preston For Undisclosed Fee

Dublin-born striker Eoin Doyle is on the move as his two-year stint with Preston North End has come to an end. 

Doyle initially joined Preston on loan from Cardiff City in September 2015 before making the move permanent at the end of the 2015/16 season.

Since a famous on-pitch bust-up with teammate Jermaine Beckford in December 2016, Doyle has made just two appearances for the Deepdale outfit. He was on loan at Oldham Athletic last season where he scored 16 times for the League One club.

England’s third tier will be his new destination as he joins Bradford City on a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The former Shamrock Rovers and Sligo Rovers striker, who will wear the No.9 shirt for his new club, is delighted with the move:

“I am absolutely over the moon to be joining Bradford City and it will be a real honour to represent such a big club,” Doyle told the club’s website.

“I cannot wait to get into training tomorrow and meet the players.

“I am delighted the deal got done before the transfer window closed because I really want to hit the ground running and get the season off to a flying start here.

“The squad looks very good and I have played with a fair few of the lads in the past. There is a lot of talent here and I believe we can enjoy some success.

“I will give everything I have for this club. I will run myself into the ground every week for the team.

“I am already looking forward to running out in front of the fans and I will wear the No.9 shirt with immense pride.”
