    Good signing in my opinion. Will provide the pace on the left or right of the front 3.

    We’ve seen what a few years has done for Toney and Armstrong, let’s hope Devante puts in the leg work to really kick on now.

    Positive move by the club, like the comment from VI as well as definitely doesn’t sound like someone not coming back.

    Not for me, was decent on loan for us but that was years ago

    Good in Scottish Premiership but that's a sh*t league

    Hope am wrong but I can't see him doing much in Championship

    Liked him a lot when he was here last. Could Devante be our Ivan Toney?

    Welcome back Devante.

    Let's not forget his last spell was 6 years ago when he was a 19/20 year old without a professional appearance to his name. He'll have learnt a lot since then.

    I feel the same - I'm considerably underwhelmed.

    Seem to recall he had discipline issues under Danny Wilson, turning up late to training etc, hopefully he’s grown out of that & kick on with us!

    I think he could be a shrewd signing. Always had the raw ability and pace but now should have the strength and experience.
    It’s his last chance at a decent level too. Here’s hoping he takes it….

    I'm usually optimistic but I dunno about this signing, 3 years is risky imo for someone who may or may not do it in Championship

    Love it when we pull something out of nowhere.

    No idea how much he's progressed since last time round, but good luck Devante - hope you smash it!

    He’s quick. Pace, not something we’re blessed with. For me he’s a great signing, welcome home Devante

    Optimistic with this one.

    Our spreadsheet has picked up some decent ones. We know him of old, and those extra few years may just be the difference.

    Welcome back Devante, best of luck

    Was he out of contract or is this uNdIscLoSeD?

    Happy with that

    If the clubs recruitment team think he’s worth it, I’m not going to argue with them. Will never get why people think they know better
