Liam Delap has also been mentioned but I’m not sure he’s that type of striker. He’s a typical young No9 isn’t he? A younger version of Fletcher Gregory and Vokes so I’m not sure he would fit the Bill at this moment in time.
Nketiah and James are pie in the sky, if either were to leave their clubs it would be for another Premier league club.
Woodburn is at Blackpool isn’t he?
Yannick Bolasie is almost certain to move to the Championship in January but I think Middlesbrough are favourites for him. He would certainly add a different dimension to our side.
Bolassie's game was built on pace - didn't he have a very major injury about 2 years ago and has possibly lost that pace so been on constant loan out to run his contract down - also he's. never been a regular goal scorer - whoever we get needs to have at least had some history of being a prolific striker

Going to be a struggle I think, particularly with FFP considerations. With Delap, Man City don’t seem to like loaning out young players and Jacob Murphy and Nketiah have been playing a bit for both their clubs so not sure they’ll be loaned out.
Wouldn’t be opposed to a punt on Daniel Sturridge if he’s still a free agent but not sure what his fitness level will be like.
Wonder if Jacob Murphy from Newcastle is available on loan again, similar wide forward type. Spent last season at Sheffield Wednesday
Like Murphy but he been getting regular game time for Castle. Put in an absolute peach of a cross for their winner yday.
Jordan Jones at Rangers will be available in Jan on loan I reckon. Not a goalscorer or as tricky as Ty but absolute rapid out wide direct at players and gets crosses in. Delap would be a good loan option rotating with Fletcher as a number 9 but depends if he would want to come where his dad is and worse with FFP may have rely on us fucking Vokes off. Tom Doyle seemed be highly rated in Man City set up, what sort of attacker is he? Worth a loan punt?
I'd be going all out for either Dwight Gayle or Liam Delap on loan, or even sign Gayle permanently if we can, I think he's out of contract in the summer so it's their last chance of getting a fee for him unless of course he signs a new deal.
