Sky Sports understands Bury are poised to sign Northern Ireland international David Healy.

Healy is a free agent after leaving Rangers at the end of last season.

Northern Ireland's all-time leading goalscorer is keen to fix himself up with a new club as he looks to win his place back in Michael O'Neill's plans.

Preston had shown an interest in re-signing Healy, but North End boss Graham Westley opting against doing a deal, citing supporter opinion as a key factor in his decision.

Bury have now moved in to offer Healy a switch to Gigg Lane with the striker set to sign a one-year deal.

Healy could go straight into the squad for this weekend's game with Coventry.
