Newcastle Reported After £10M Premier League Striker


The Mail is reporting today that Newcastle are willing to make a move for £10M rated Crystal Palace striker Dwight Gayle.

Since moving to Crystal Palace from Peterborough three years ago, Gayle has scored 25 goals in 74 total appearances for the Premier League club, but he has been unable to command a regular first team place under manager Alan Pardew.

Dwight Gayle – £10M for this striker?

We have never rated this player too highly, although we suppose he could score some goals for us in the Championship next season.

Gayle joined Peterborough from Dagenham & Redbridge in late 2012, initially on loan – and after signing permanently for them in January of 2013 he scored 13 goals in 29 appearances – in just over half a season in the Championship.

In July of 2103 he signed a four year deal at Palace for around £4.5M.

The 25-year-old has since signed a new four year contract in April of last year at Crystal Palace, maybe to protect the investment of Crystal Palace, but £10M seems a lot to pay for a fairly ordinary striker.

He did score 7 goals in 20 appearances last season, but we wonder if he’s worth £10M?

What do you think?

    Next,
    Why not put a decent offer in for Jordan Rhodes, although he’s waited ages for a PL chance and will probably want to stay where he is.

    Some technique that like to get it in from that far out and running away from the goal to reach it. They deserved that.

    That fernandes for the Swiss, didn’t he used to play for citeh just after they become a sovereign state?

    You cannot get away from the fact that when Rafa originally took us on he said he knew our squad and rated it .
    The 3/4 players will be to replace the ship-jumpers and Steven Taylor.

    We won’t pay 10 mill for him but he would be a good addition up front

    Gayle is a good little player he gets wasted playing for Pardew whenever I have watched him as he gets slapped out on the wing quite a lot which is not really his game !

    10 million is going to be the rate for players at Gayle’s level so best to get used to it now rather than moaning about prices!

    If we get anyone decent who has premiership experience for under 10 million this summer I will be amazed !

    The only thing I think he’s got going for him is pace. Other than that he’s pretty poo.

    That was the goal of the tournament for me. Unbelievable.

    See the only thing I think that goes against him is temperament mate, whenever I’ve seen him play for palace I can’t understand why the others are starting ahead of him

    Gayle – no thanks. King Percy will be telling Penfold that Gayle is the next world superstar.

    welshgeordie9 – why do people swear in here? Because they think it makes them look like big boys. Just like the dolt who said that the ex-Chelsea medic had ‘nice chebs’. That’s the thinking of someone with the IQ of a breeze block.

    Tattoos, you say? When I was a young lad I asked my dad if it was alright to have one he said not until I’m older I key my mam and she said ok but just get one done somewhere of nobody cared about so I had it done in Hartlepool boom diddy boom.

    Actually I’ve never believed in tattoos I’m sorry but I think injecting ink under your skin so people can see your idiotic ideas for a lifetime is just daft. To see 50+ women with them is cringe worthy, sorry. I bet they were the ones who used to shout at their kids for writing on their hands with biro. 😀

    To each their own though.

    “Nancy considering Emmanuel Rivière move”.

    This is not a lady called Nancy but a town in France.

    As Nancy in for Riviere. Hopefully him and Gouffy will be another 2 misfits out the door.

    Jib I didn’t mean to offend you especially as you are the proud wearer of a “D” imprinted on your forehead. If you read all of that you’ll find it was a personal slant and my closing comment illustrates how I feel about all person choices, if they don’t affect me, then, hey, they don’t affect me.

    You on the other hand seem to be an enemy of free speech.

    Jazzy,
    I wouldn’t be too disappointed if Gouff was still here for the Championship, there is going to be at least 50 games and he’s not a bad squad player, he might just surprise us at a lower level.
