Preston North End have pounced to snap up Kilkenny striker Sean Maguire.
The Championship club announced the deal this morning (Saturday) that will see Maguire sign a three-year deal in July.
Maguire has hit the headlines this season, scoring 16 goals already to catapult Cork City to the top of the table. Maguire scored a hat-trick last night as the Rebel Army beat reigning champions Dundalk 3-0.
Maguire, who cut his teeth with Deen Celtic and Evergreen in the Kilkenny & District League, was named the PFAI Young Player of the Year in 2016. He was also named in the PFAI Premier Division Team of the Year.
