Sheffield United and Celtic among teams keen on Preston's Ben Davies

Preston’s Ben Davies on the radar of Sheffield United, Celtic, Bournemouth and Genk with the defender’s contract ending in six months’ time

  • Preston defender Ben Davies’ contract comes to an end this summer
  • Davies has rejected the latest improved contract offered by Alex Neil’s side  
  • The 25-year-old is on the radar of Sheffield United and Bournemouth in England 
  • Celtic and Genk are also looking at signing Davies on a free transfer this year 

Sheffield United, Celtic, Bournemouth and Genk are among the clubs showing an interest in Preston North End defender Ben Davies.

The 25-year-old has turned down Preston’s latest contract offer and could sign a pre-contract this month and move for free in the summer. 

Davies has been a regular part of Alex Neil’s squad at the back having played 15 league appearances this season, though he missed eight games in the middle of the season due to a hamstring problem.

Davies is understood to have concerns about a move to Bramall Lane though with Chris Wilder’s Blades struggling to find a win in this Premier League season.

The south Yorkshire club were beaten 2-0 by Crystal Palace on Saturday which leaves Wilder’s side winless after 17 top-flight games this season.

Bournemouth are high-flying in the Championship as the second tier nears the half-way stage and the Cherries could be playing Premier League football next season rather than Wilder’s Blades. 

A move to Celtic or Genk would increase Davies’ chances of playing European football next season.
