Kilmarnock look set for a fight to keep Eamonn Brophy as Preston reportedly eye up a move (Daily Mail).

Lillywhites boss Alex Neil gave the Scotland international his chance at Hamilton as a youngster and has followed his career since. He’s now seemingly keen on reuniting with Brophy at Deepdale.

At Kilmarnock Brophy has managed to break into the Scotland setup and has four goals this term.

A decision for Kilmarnock to make

Neil wants to beef up his striker department after watching his side drop down to sixth in the Championship, which is still a respectable position.

Ex-SPFL strikers Jayden Stockley and Louis Moult are on the books at Deepdale, although the latter is currently out with a long-term knee problem. Brophy would come in to provide competition.

By all accounts, Brophy’s had a pretty frustrating campaign. Four goals isn’t great and if a decent Preston bid came in, perhaps Brophy and Kilmarnock may have a chat about the future.

Whether a move beckons for the 23-year-old is unclear but his positive spell at Rugby Park overall was always going to attract interest.
