Hume in Transfer Talks

25 August 2010 01:24
Reports in Barnsley suggest that Preston are on the verge of signing Tykes' striker Iain Hume. The striker who has been linked with Preston previously before joining Leicester a number of years ago is said to be in talks over a possible move to Deepdale ahead of the transfer deadline. Initially it was understood that a swap deal would be concluded with Jon Parkin returning to his native Barnsley but this appears to have hit the buffers. Instead, it is thought that Hume will join Preston either on loan or for a cash deal if a settlement can be agreed.
