REPORT: Wycombe Wanderers Close to Sealing Move for Hibernian Midfielder Daryl Horgan

It looks like Daryl Horgan could be on his way back to England in the next few days, with the Daily Record reporting that Wycombe Wanderers are set to complete a move for the Irishman.

Wycombe Wanderers Likely to Complete Deal for Daryl Horgan

Jack Ross Confirms Player Is on the Move

The 28-year-old has been with current club Hibernian since the 2018/19 season, bagging six goals and seven assists during his time with the SPL side.

However, current manager Jack Ross has spoken to RTE Ireland and has claimed that Horgan is indeed likely to leave the club over the course over the next few days, with a move to England on the horizon.

He said: “Daryl Horgan isn’t involved today as it is likely he will move on from the club in the next few days.

“It’s something that has been potentially on the horizon for the last couple of weeks. So it was important we addressed that by bringing Jamie [Murphy] in. Daryl is most likely going to return to England so we had to go about finding a replacement and a creative wide player.”

Previous Spell in England

If he does complete a move back to England and the Championship, it won’t be his first spell in the league.

Before his move over to Scotland, Horgan plied his trade for Preston North End. Having spent his entire career in Ireland with Sathill Devon, Sligo Rovers, Cork and Dundalk, he then made the decision to join PNE in 2016/17.

He played a total of 40 times for the Lilywhites, but only started 12 games in total, failing to make a name for himself or break into the starting eleven on a regular basis.

However, he did manage seven goal contributions during his time at Deepdale, and Wycombe will be hoping that he can improve on that and continue for the club upon his return to the second tier of English football.

Out of Contract Next Summer

Horgan’s current deal with Hibs comes to an end next summer, and it looks like the club will now be cashing in on him instead of letting him potentially leave for nothing.

If Gareth Ainsworth completes the deal, it will be Wycombe’s fourth transfer dealing of the summer.
