Steve Bruce says he's full of admiration for Jermain Defoe as he prepares to bring Birmingham City to the Lane.
The City boss played with and against some of the world's top strikers in his multi championship winning days at Manchester United.
And he's tipping Jermain - two goals in three games this season - for the top.
"I'm a big admirer of him," Bruce told Sky Sports News. "He wants to score. He's got that look where all he's interested in is sticking it in the back of the net.
"He's sharp, quick, elusive, he has all the attributes and I'm sure if het gets an international call and gets in there regulalrly, he'll have a big, big future."
