    Just watched this lad score a hat trick live on Sky. I think that's 14 goals this season. Looks like the real deal, reminds me of Michael Owen. He has to be worth a punt.

    And he can take a penalty.

    Oh I'd absolutely relish this! I buy him every year on my Fifa career mode and he's amazing! To have him actually playing for Forest in real life would be fantastic.

    He's the kind of player we've been screaming out for.

    Bradford would want big money though!

    Can't be as much as the £4.5m Wolves want for Sak-o Shit.

    Could Bradford really turn down a offer of 2-3m?

    With the buzz around the lad at the moment, I'd say they could probably name their price. It's only a matter of time before some desperate bottom of the table Prem side snap him up (Palace?) for something silly like 7-8million and he fades into obscurity.

    We should of gone in for him this summer when there was talk he could leave for the 2 million mark. Reminds me very much of Earnshaw with his movement and pace, his finishing looks very good too. Sometimes you have to take a punt on players who are bang in form to reap the rewards.

    I'd imagine that every club in the Championship is looking at him, but we're one of the few with the financial means to pull it off. If we're doing it then it's got to be January. He's on course to score 30 this season though, which will probably double his price next summer

    And you're a football financial expert?

    Come on if a club like Bradford got offered 2m for him they'll snap their hands off!

    Peterborough got £6.5m for Gayle. Still worth a look though. Could test the water with a cheeky £2M bid mind.

    Since when can these lower league clubs demand this sort of fee for unproven talent?

    Should we be talking about £25m each for players like Reid and Lansbury?

    He's young... he's fast... he scores goals... he's from goddamn Bermuda... these players don't come around often. He's worth £2.5m

    I don't think that Gayle price is a good gauge though because he was horribly overpriced.

    Dont have to be an expert sakho 3.5 mill plus, gayle whatever, even jordan rhodes is a valid comparasion as yes they were promoted but he hadnt played a minutes football in the champ when he went for 8 mill.

    Best thing to come from Bermuda since Shaun Goater.

    Slight concerns over the possibility he could go missing on international duty in the Bermuda Triangle.

    Reading his history he looks like he has had one good season at Bradford and has carried it on since. Id give him until the end of the season and see if he is still in this type of form. Only then would I consider a decent bid. One season wonders are not worth £2.5 mil

    More what we need than Sako I think. If we are prepared to spend £3M+ on him I would rather we get a striker. Only seem youtube clips but he looks pretty quick and calm in front of goal. Worth a punt.

    39 goals in 58 starts (+ 26 sub appearances). If he can score for fun in League One he can do it in the Championship. There aren't many defenders in our league that can handle pace

    Having watched him a few times last season he looks a decent player, but Bradford play around him. I don't think he would necessarily do well in our team, reckon he would be better at a club like Burnley.
