Struck me as a Conor Sammon-esque player. I think I even laughed at him at one point last season during a Wycombe game. I would hope not, but we will see. 

I would imagine a lot of fans from opposing teams had the odd larf about us too 🤣

He looked very powerful and may well be effective in a team that can get the ball to him in the right areas

... but then that's true of most forwards. 

Not the most skilful but could create havoc for others to benefit.

'Expected to be an affordable option at Championship level'. 😄 2 years left on his existing contract ? Looks like whoever wrote that article isn't keeping up with current events at DCFC !

Decent age, I thought he was quite impressive the few times I saw him play, his first touch wasnt too bad. Seemed a bit clumsy at times but Wanchope looked like that too! Scored a decent goal vs Bournemouth at the end of the season.

In terms of price he would likely cost way below £1m which if we do have any money its likely to be in the value range we would be signing players.

Seems like a younger version of CKR, I wouldnt be against the signing at all. 

As fans we need to realise what level of player we're likely to be getting this summer.

I agree completely re the sort of signings we are likely to make without any good resolution to our off-field circus.

There's no great expectations from me at all and I can't see us paying a fee as it stands though so I'm expecting season long loans and frees. With 2 years on his contract and with Wycombe not having to support the cost base of a large established Championship side then I doubt they'll be forced to accept chicken feed, particularly if they can get more than one club interested.

How can we possibly sign him, even if we were interested. we are on a transfer embargo, and cannot pay any money for players. 

The same way we managed to sign Jozwiak & Byrne last summer in the middle of an embargo. We will have to wait for it to be lifted (if it ever is this summer)

It's not like the embargo means we can't be interested in players, we're going to be looking at players still.

Exactly, we have to plan for when/if the embargo is lifted so we're ready to sign players asap. The club may even have a date in mind for a takeover which is likely to remove the embargo so can speak to players knowing this.

I liked what I saw from him in the games I watched especially in terms of activity competing with central defenders and making more space for others to score, he’s at a good age to know what he can do on a football pitch and let’s be honest if Warnock and Hughton are wanting him then they know what’s needed in this league especially up front.

We can actually sign players, as long as there’s no fee involved and the wages fit in with the club's salary budget. Definitely concentrating on loan players and cheaper options from the lower leagues.

Whilst I can’t currently see us spending any money on a transfer he is the sort of big strong energetic lad up front that you need in the championship either to start or on the bench and we should remember the actual last time we got promoted we did it with Steve Howard playing for us.
