Championship clubs tracking Bradford ace Devante Cole

HITC Sport understands a number of clubs are tracking Bradford City hot-shot Devante Cole.

In-form Bradford City striker Devante Cole is attracting interest from a host of Championship clubs after catching the eye at Valley Parade, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Cole has been a revelation for Bradford since his arrival on a free transfer from Manchester City at the end of August.

The 20-year-old has scored five goals in eight League One appearances, including the winner in Saturday's 1-0 victory at Doncaster Rovers.

The England Under-20 international is the son of former Newcastle and Manchester United striker Andrew Cole.

Cole's performances for Bradford have not gone unnoticed with clubs higher up the football pyramid keeping tabs on his progress.

Cole came through the youth ranks at City since joining the club at the age of seven, but did not make a first-team appearance for the club.

The skilful forward was a regular in City's Elite Development Squad at the Etihad Stadium and was a prolific goalscorer in the youth teams, but was unable to break into City's star-studded first-team.

Cole signed a two-year deal when joining Bradford and the club are bracing themselves for interest in the player if he continues his rich vein of form in front of goal.
