Not really sure what to make of this. On one hand a different type of forward to what we have and a real presence in the box but never been that impressed by him when I have seen him. Oh well only time will tell

I agree. Nice to see a different type of option in for up front, as I think some teams have started to suss the small, quick and nippy passing attacking style we have, as nice as it is.

The good thing is that I can see a number of ways he could be utilised.

As a lone striker, knocking it down to people like Maddison and Murphy to run onto, giving Armstrong a rest.

As a partner for Armstrong, flicking it on for him to use his pace

As a last gasp sub so we have someone we can lump it long to if needbe.

Yes, he's far from prolific, but forwards of this type rarely are. I think the big thing will be seeing how he helps other people be more effective in games rather than how many goals he scores himself.
