Hammers linked with the next ‘Jamie Vardy’

Sdddlaven Bilic is considering a move for Grays Athletic striker Dumebi Dumaka, who has been dubbed non-league football’s next Jamie Vardy claims the Daily Express today.

Dumaka has been impressive for Grays this season  with 15 goals so far in the  Ryman Isthmian League. Affectionately known as “DD”, he has already spent time training with Ipswich Town, Fleetwood and Cambridge United this season after a host of clubs were alerted to his scoring exploits for Grays. Dumaka joined Grays in August 2014, he was previously with Heybridge Swifts and Barking, for whom he performed well against us in an Essex Senior Cup tie in 2013.

Hammers scouts are said to have regularly watched him in action now Bilic has to decide whether he believes the 21-year-old has what it takes to step up to the Premier League. Dumaka works as a a private banking analyst.

The Express report appears to be a re-hash of a similar Daily Mail report last October
