Loan : Preston NE – Portsmouth
Blues bring in striker on deadline day
Pompey have signed Eoin Doyle on loan from Championship side Preston North End for the remainder of the 2016/17 campaign.
The 28-year-old Irish striker will wear the number 17 shirt during his time at Fratton Park.
He played under Paul Cook at both Sligo and Chesterfield, and the Blues boss said: “Having worked with Eoin previously at two clubs, I am delighted with this signing.
“He knows what I want as a manager and I know that I can rely on him to give 100 per cent on the pitch.
“Eoin brings commitment and quality to our side and I’m sure he’ll be popular with all our supporters.
“We’re extremely pleased with his signing and are very grateful to Preston for loaning him to us.”
Doyle moved south of the border from Hibs to join Chesterfield in 2013 and also featured for Cardiff prior to signing for Preston last summer following a successful loan spell.
