The Sun have reported that Bradford City have got their eye on a late deal for Mansfield Town striker Danny Rose – with the West-Yorkshire club potentially looking to reinvest some of the money from the sale of Charlie Wyke to Sunderland.
Whilst it seems unlikely that the Bantams will try an 11th attempt to bring in the League Two striker given the fact that they bought in Eoin Doyle as a ready-made replacement for Charlie Wyke, with the striker only being 24-years-old and showing clear promise for the stags with his tally of 14 goals in 39 games, he would fit the bill perfectly for the Bantams philosophy of signing young, talented players and then moving them on for profit.
Peterborough United and Luton Town are also supposedly interested in a late deal for the striker, with each of the clubs thinking about a late flurry in the transfer window, although it seems somewhat unlikely Peterborough are prepared to part with £500k, especially given the fact that they signed Newcastle United striker Ivan Toney for a six-figure fee this morning.
If Bradford City do move to sign Rose, they would arguably have the most talented strikeforce in the division, with George Miller, Alex Jones and Eoin Doyle already all ensuring the club are well stocked in the forward department, alongside young strikers Tom Clare and Omari Patrick.
The Bantams are hoping to push for promotion this season under the guidance of young manager Michael Collins, but it appears as if their business has been done early in the window, to give them the best possible chance of promotion this season.
