Vital Burnley already reported a few days ago that Burnley had made a casual enquiry for Preston left-winger, Keith Treacy
If you want to be reminded about the background to this, feel free to read our earlier article by clicking this link:
Keith Treacy and the Casual Enquiry!
Speculation then grew in the local media this week that Burnley had stepped up the casual enquiry and may even have made an offer for the 22 year old Republic of Ireland international.
Now it's all quiet on the Western front again with no denials or confirmation from either club that another more formal approach has been made by Eddie Howe.
Suzanne Geldard writing for the Lancashire Telegraph on Friday wrote:
'I understand subsequent contact has had more substance as Howe looks to add to his left-sided options'
Keith Treacy though himself feels that playing in League 1 would not enhance his career prospects:
"I feel maybe the Championship or the Premiership at a push would be ideal for me. I think I`m a little bit better than League One if I`m being honest'
The former Blackburn Rovers winger has also been speaking to Preston gaffer, Phil Brown and revealed:
"We had a meeting and he`s just put a price on my head and said, 'if it gets met, all well and good, we won`t hold you back`.
"We`ll have to wait and see now if a club is interested or what`s going to happen but I`m hopeful because I want to play at the highest level I possibly can."
Will that club be the Clarets? Well we could have a fight on our hands to get him if the words of Preston Chairman, Maurice Lindsay are anything to go by. This week he told the LT:
'We will only be letting players go if it suits us," said Lindsay
"I would be totally against Keith Treacy leaving, he is such an exciting player on the ball and can be a prolific goalscorer from the wing when he`s on form."
