The former Brentford man has made a positive start to life at Turf moor following his move from Griffin Park, scoring nine goals in 12 Championship starts.
Aged just 24, Gray has huge potential and a step up to the Premier League with promotion-chasing Burnley, or on the books of another club is certainly a realistic possibility.
Described as quick and powerful, he has proved to be a menace for Championship clubs over the past 18 months and it’s quite remarkable considering he was once a Hinckley United star.
His good form this season has already started to attract attention from top-flight clubs, with the Mirror claiming that Everton, West Ham and Villa are keeping close tabs on his progress.
The Toffees have always kept a close eye on the rising stars from the lower leagues, with talented centre-back John Stones contracted to Barnsley before moving to Goodison Park.
West Ham are another keen to exploit the Championship market - Michail Antonio arriving in the summer from East Midlands outfit Nottingham Forest.
However, the top-flight trio may wait until next summer in terms of acquiring Gray as rules state while a player can be registered with three different clubs in the same season, he can only play for two.
Gray began the campaign as a Brentford player, scoring twice in two championship matches.
