Preston North End, Wigan Athletic and Bolton Wanderers are all interested in signing Bradford City striker Charlie Wyke, according to the Yorkshire Post. 

The 25-year-old has been in decent goal scoring form for the Bantams over recent seasons and could be rewarded with a move to the Championship this summer.

Wyke started his career at his local team Middlesbrough but never made a senior appearance for the Riverside club. Instead, he gained early first-team experience during loan spells at Kettering, Hartlepool United and AFC Wimbledon.

He left Middlesbrough on a permanent basis in January 2015 to join League Two side Carlisle United. Wyke was prolific for the Cumbrians and scored 39 goals in 89 games for them. This earned him a move to Bradford City in January 2017 and he has bagged 19 goals for them since his transfer.

Preston North End are keen to build on their impressive campaign last season under Alex Neil and have targeted a move for Wyke to bolster their attack. Bolton Wanderers, on the other hand, narrowly stayed up in the Championship last season and want Wyke to score the goals to keep them up this time around. The Trotters are also keen on Ipswich Town forward Joe Garner.

Wigan Athletic have also been credited with an interest in Wyke. The Latics won the League One title last season and are looking for potential signing to make them a force to be reckoned with in the Championship.

Charlie Wyke has proven himself in League One and deserves a move to the Championship, but to where is yet to be known yet.
