Preston North End continue to be linked with Hibernian striker Kevin Nisbet but face additional competition from Galatasaray.

PNE will surely be in the market for one, two, maybe even three or four strikers this summer depending on how things turn out.

Ched Evans is facing an uncertain future due to a serious health condition whilst Emil Riis remains on the treatment table.

Loanees Tom Cannon, Troy Parrott and Liam Delap are all scheduled to return to their parent clubs at the end of the season.

Why Chelsea FINALLY Turned A Corner.

Striker rumours will be coming soon enough and one has already emerged with Hibernian striker Nisbet.

PNE face Galatasaray battle for Kevin Nisbet

The Scottish Daily Mail (18/04, p73) claimed that Nisbet is attracting major interest with PNE in the race.

Blackburn Rovers, Middlesbrough and Sheffield United were also mentioned in that report.

The Scottish Sun have now offered some information on Nisbet’s future, claiming that Millwall are back in for him.

Millwall agreed a deal worth around £2.3million for Nisbet in January, but he rejected the move.

Now entering the final year of his Hibs deal, Nisbet is expected to be a little cheaper this time around.

That report claims that PNE have ‘entered the race’, backing up the Mail’s claims of North End interest.

However, The Sun also note that Turkish giants Galatasaray scouted Nisbet in action for Hibs against Hearts on Sunday.

Nisbet scored the only goal of the game to give Hibs derby day bragging rights.

The Scot has now racked up 10 goals in 13 games this season having returned from a major injury.

It’s hard to see PNE splashing the cash this summer but with a new striker needed and Nisbet’s contract running down, North End could battle Galatasaray and more in the race for his signature.
