Huddersfield Town and Preston North End have reportedly got their eye up impressive National League goal machine Kabongo Tshimanga.
The player who started out at Milton Keynes Dons before playing for non league sides Aldershot, Chelmsford, Corby, Nuneaton, Chesham, Boston United, Oxford City and of course his latest club Boreham Wood.
Tshimanga has made an superb start to the season in the National League by finding the net 11 times in his opening 20 appearances.
His impressive performances has caught the attention of Huddersfield and Preston as mentioned, with the Championship duo sending out scouts to watch him.
He has only been with Boreham Wood since July 2019 after he signed from National League South side Oxford City, where he scored 24 in 42 games.
Tshimanga ended his first season as top scorer with 29 goals in all competitions, three of those a hat-trick in a 3-3 draw against Tranmere in the FA Cup First Round.
He was also the recipient of the club’s Supporters’ and Players’ Player of the Year awards as well as named in the 2018–19 National League South Team of the Year. And you certainly can see why in the video below…
Speaking in November 2014, then Milton Keynes Dons manager Karl Robinson (now flying high with Oxford United) described Tshimanga’s style of play as “quick, powerful, he wants to run at people and he’s a constant threat.”
Could we be seeing him do a Jamie Vardy in making a giant leap from the National League to the Championship?
