Wigan Athletic have reportedly accepted an offer from Queens Park Rangers for Kieffer Moore who has been heavily linked with a move to Preston North End.
Moore has been one of the prolific players for Wigan who have continued to climb up in the English Championship standings.
Preston North End manager Alex Neil downplayed rumours circulating of the club being linked with the 27-year-old.
"It's speculation, we get linked to players all the time," Neil said.
"I think that's just naturally because we're getting closer to the transfer window.
"This isn't a conversation that we've had for the last couple of months, but the window opens in 11 days.
"Wigan are in administration, so his agent will be doing what his agent should be doing."
Moore has scored nine goals and provided five assists from 35 appearances this season.
