Report – Newcastle Have Resisted Approaches For In Demand Forward

Football Insider are reporting that Newcastle are determined to keep striker Dwight Gayle this summer despite the interest from a number of Championship clubs.

The report, written by Pete O’Rourke, makes the claim that Newcastle have resisted approaches from West Brom and Stoke City for the twenty-eight-year-old. Newcastle reportedly have been contacted by both clubs in regards to Gayle’s availability. However, Steve Bruce is not willing to let Gayle leave. This report reflects what Bruce said after the St-Etienne win on Saturday about wanting to keep the striker for this season.

Yesterday, it was reported that Dwight Gayle was keen to rejoin West Brom on loan after losing the number 9 shirt to record signing Joelinton. New West Brom manager Slaven Bilic was also reportedly interested in bringing back the player who scored 24 goals for the Baggies last season.

O’Rourke reports that Stoke City have also made enquiries for Dwight Gayle but have been rebuffed by Steve Bruce. Gayle is also one of the only out and out strikers at the club so Steve Bruce is very reluctant to let him go.

We expect there to be more reports of approaches for Gayle over the next couple of days. He is worth a fortune to Championship clubs as he is almost a guarantee of 20 goals a season as long as he stays fit. We would expect that a club would have to come in with a fee of close to £15m to get him in.

    Of course the championship manager wants to keep a championship striker. He’s already preparing for next season

    Bruce is not daft… Joelinton hasn’t scored 10 goals in a season anywhere he has played you need to keep Gayle at least until January because he has been known to score (mainly in the Champo but still unless we sign a known quantity to replace him you can’t have Miggy & Saint-Max as your backups if Linton is a flop).

    Lord the Graun writers already have us nailed on for relegation in their season preview but the column (by Michael Butler) itself reflects my prediction for another nailbiter season.

    Why had we been relegated?

    Ashleys poor infrastructure and mismanagement I’d say, if the debt had increased you must concede it isn’t paying it’s way?

    The club would be in even more debt if the families had been maintained and upgraded when needed.

    Both Stoke and WBA want a loan deal , Ashley wants 15 million – Gayle will be in last year of contract after this season so it’s cash in now or never

    Ashley is and has been doing what your implying a boycott will do for 12 years but you aren’t saying or doing anything constructive to stop it, you’re doing the opposite, you’re trying to stop people trying.

    You dont know it won’t work like we don’t know if it will, you’d rather pour cold water on it before it has a chance to succeed or fail.

    HWA (from previous #215)

    This has been discussed many times before (e.g. https://www.nufcblog.com/2019/07/20/lascelles-and-dubravka-speak-about-impact-of-steve-bruce-over-the-past-few-days/#comment-2066741 – easiest to look up where I’ve commented before).

    It’s good that we’re making money, but more of it should be going back into the club rather than going elsewhere.

    Totally agree with OP #9 too.
