Just seen this in the telegraph, anyone heard anything on this - is there any substance? - I usually take all 'social media' rumors with a massive pinch of salt!

However, an interesting social media thread hinted that Jolley is a long-term admirer of Finland striker Eero Markkanen.

Standing close to 2m tall, the 27-year-old has played for several clubs in the Allsvenskan, as well as his national team. According to one Finnish newspaper, he is attracting interest from several clubs this window, across several nations.

Once signed by Real Madrid, the article suggests that (at least) one club from England is interested in Markkanen. It may be a case of putting two and two together, but according to the player’s agent, Jolley is thought to be aware of the player.

Certainly an interesting one. According to Wiki:

“In September 2014, he was chosen for Real Madrid's 25-man squad for the UEFA Champions League, but did not make any appearances.”

That’s not bad going. Must have something about him for sure.

at 6ft 6" , he'd certainly give us that aerial presence that we seem to lack up top. -Davis is our only real areal threat with crosses into the box

Doesn't appear to have stayed anywhere for any length of time and not played that many games over the past 2 or 3 years, but his goals to appearance record  in the past is not too bad..

One in 3 scoring record (51 in 163), does seem abit of a journeymen but that might be more because he's only ever been offered short term deals. Could offer us something very different to what we already have.

Only if he’s two metres wide as well.

I think we definitely need some height in the team. At 6"6 he would be a great asset in both boxes.
