The 30-year-old forward is still in Dubai but could fly back to the United Kingdom to hold talks with Preston manager Alex Neil.

He was taken to Celtic Park by Brendan Rodgers in a £3.5m deal from Aston Villa in 2016 and is one of the club's highest-paid players on a contract which expires in June.
Sinclair has scored 62 goals in 167 games for the Hoops and has won eight major trophies in his time with the club, which could come to an end in the current transfer window.
