Reports online suggest Doncaster Rovers are set to sign Walsall target Andy Boyle on loan from Preston.
It seemed as though Walsall had become the only genuine interest following Wigan and Rotherham decision to not sign the Irish defender however Doncaster have come in late to prize him away from the Saddlers.
Boyle – capped against Iceland last March – has started just 10 league games for Preston since joining from Dundalk just over a year ago.
Boyle has played for Ireland at every level possible and started his career at UCD before moving onto Shelbourne.
Boyle was vice captain of Dundalk as they made the qualifying rounds of the Champions League last season.
