It seems that Dwight Gayle may have patched up whatever differences he had with Rafa Benitez over the summer and at the beginning of the season.
Rafa was ready to sell the striker to Fulham for £15M in the summer, but we didn’t have time to bring in a replacement.
And that would give us a £5M profit on the player, but he’s worth at least that to any Championship club looking for promotion.
There could be more clubs interested in Dwight come January
Gayle is now training well and got a run out in the team in the second half of the 2-1 win last Saturday against Stoke City.
With Joselu missing those three good chances last Saturday there could even be a chance that Dwight is recalled tomorrow at Brighton, although we doubt that will happen.
Dwight Gayle – Newcastle striker – may be sold in January?
Dwight is keen to show he can score goals in the Premier League, but Rafa is now building a team that can challenge for the top six in the Premier League.
The players he now needs have to be a lot better than in the past, and maybe Dwight doesn’t fit into Rafa’s new plans for the team.
Dwight could even be sold in January, but before that happens Newcastle would need to line up a suitable replacement.
But Dwight has until the end of the year to show Rafa he deserves to stay at Newcastle.
He must show the manager that he can indeed score goals in the Premier League.
If he does that he will stay part of the Rafa revolution on Tyneside.
