Bruce worked with Johnson at St Andrews before allowing him to move to Crystal Palace five years ago - a decision he still regrets - and he can see the same attributes in Jerome, who initially took time to settle after his £3million move from Cardiff last summer.
Bruce said: "Cameron has got all the raw materials. He reminds me of a young Andrew Johnson in terms of his pace and his sheer power. In hindsight I let ´AJ´ go too quick as a 21-year-old. I won´t make the same mistake with Cameron. You´ve got to give people time to mature and get better."
