Keith Treacy Nearly A Claret!

Keith Treacy Nearly A Claret!

Burnley look set to make their first permanent signing of the summer with news that Preston winger, Keith Treacy will be discussing personal terms with the club tomorrow (Monday 1st August)

Both Preston and Burnley have agreed a fee for the 22 year old former Blacburn Rovers player.

The Republic of Ireland international was absent from Preston`s friendly with Wigan today fueling speculation a deal was imminent.

The Deepdale club are reported to have now accepted the latest offer from Burnley. By all accounts their fourth of the summer!

Preston chairman Maurice Lindsay told the Lancashire Telegraph:

"I have personally turned down three offers from Burnley for Keith but their final offer had to be accepted.

"The offer for Keith, which was all the cash upfront, was one that we could not refuse."

Lindsay continued:

"Burnley`s offer today was conditional upon an immediate agreement which meant that Keith would be unable to play (against Wigan).

"I suppose they were making sure that he avoided any injury. Either way, we had no option."

Well the long wait by Clarets fans for our first permanent signing of the summer looks to be over.

Looks like a straight cash deal. Wonder how much has been agreed? No doubt it will be 'undisclosed' again! Cort still looks stranded then,unwanted and unloved?

Whatever doubts there have been, I reckon Eddie will make the most of Treacy.

All the money up front - and Eddie is apparently strapped for cash because of the many instalments that our sales come in (Kilby interview). Sound business sense...not! But as for Treacey - decent signing. The Howie babes are shaping up well!

Now I could say the club had played a blinder on this but it more likley to have been circumstantial (hope I got that word right)..... fire up the press with a whisper that Burnley were going else where for a winger and Maurice Lindsey's out of his chair.... this has to be a £1M cash deal If we listen to the Chairman on player saying the Mears Eagles deal is £1M for each of there 3 year contracts we have probably banked this now and it en route to Preston Tuesday morning! Eddies been keen on this guy so lets see what we make of him................ have to say this deal has been like pulling teeth and for a poxy £1M you really do have to ask what has been going on and why its been so difficult to pull this together, fair play to BFC they have communicated the news quickly
