Three Championship clubs are now in the hunt for Bradford City striker Charlie Wyke, following his goalscoring exploits in League One last season.
The Yorkshire Post reports that Preston, Wigan and Bolton are all hunting the former Carlisle man, who bagged 16 in 43 matches for the Bantams as they missed out on a play-off spot.
Wyke started out at Middlesbrough as a youth and had loans spells with Kettering, AFC Wimbledon and Hartlepool before earning an 18-month deal with the Cumbrians. After scoring 39 times in 89 outings, Bradford moved to add him to their ranks.
Wyke has only been at Valley Parade for eighteen months, initially joining on deadline day in January 2017. He scored seven in 19 appearances at the end of his first season, bringing his Bantams total to 23.
Bolton struggled for goals last season after Gary Madine left for Cardiff, whilst Preston’s Sean Maguire led their Championship scoring charts with just ten goals. Wigan saw Wyke first hand, he scored against them in November as Bradford registered a 2-1 victory.
Wyke looks ready for another step up, but Bradford would be reticent to let him go. They struggled in the second half of last season and selling their leading scorer could exasperate those problems.
they’d be foolish to turn down a big fee though, if the chasing clubs are willing to pay.
