Nottingham Forest, Blackburn and Bristol City in Jerry Yates transfer hunt after Blackpool striker's impressive season

JERRY YATES is attracting interest from Nottingham Forest, Blackburn and Bristol City ahead of a summer swoop.

The 24-year-old Blackpool striker has scored an impressive 16 goals for Neil Critchley’s side this season.

And Yates’ form is being monitored by scouts from the trio of Championship clubs.

The forward is valued at £2million by the Seasiders.

And he ramped up interest in him again last night with another stunning display.

Yates netted twice in the 3-1 home win over Peterborough.

That result was enough to fire the Seasiders into the League One play-off places.

Blackpool signed Yates from Rotherham on a three-year deal last summer.

He moved to the Millers in his teens and enjoyed several stints out on loan.

The hotshot spent time at Harrogate, Carlisle and Swindon but failed to make a real impact in Rotherham’s first team.


The Doncaster-born ace then opted for a fresh challenge last summer.

And he has enjoyed a huge transformation since that switch.

The ace is currently sixth in the race for the third tier’s golden boot.
