Newcastle Must Only Accept A Permanent Deal For This Player


Dwight Gayle made his long-awaited return to the match-day squad against Manchester United before the international break. He was an unused substitute after missing the start to this season due to a pesky calf injury he suffered in July.

Steve Bruce seems to rate the striker who turns 29 tomorrow and will likely want to give him some time on the pitch before a decision is made on his future.

However, Bruce may not have the luxury of time to make a decision on Dwight. His contract will run out in the summer of 2021. Since he is nearing that pivotal age of 30, he may not be in line for a new one with Newcastle.

Dwight Gayle– likely to draw some interest in January

There is likely to be interest in Gayle this January from Championship clubs looking to make a splash in their run for promotion as he is a proven commodity in the second tier.

With Newcastle also reportedly considering additions this winter, Gayle may be one of the current crop of players who could be allowed to move on.

With the squad maxed out at twenty-five, a player will have to be dropped for each new arrival in January. So if Newcastle are serious about bringing in reinforcements, they will have to cut someone loose.

Former Middlesborough striker and lifelong Leeds fan Noel Whelan reckons that Leeds should make a winter move for Dwight Gayle. This is what Whelan had to say in Football Insider:

“I’ve seen the Radrizzani interview and it is exciting for Leeds fans. He talks about new investment if we get promoted this season.

“What Leeds need is investment not just for the Premier League, but for the January window. He should be looking to get a loan or some cash front-loaded for January. There is no guarantee we are going to go up.

“Do a deal now and get some money in. It doesn’t have to be a huge amount, just enough to immediately improve the team.

“I’m thinking a loan deal for someone like Dwight Gayle. He’d be perfect for us, a proven striker who could well be available and who has a brilliant record in the Championship.

“I can see him joining. We would just have to match his Newcastle wages, which Leeds probably wouldn’t be able to afford without new investment. That’s the reality.”

Leeds owner Andrea Radrizzani is considering an offer from Qatari Sports Investment that would give the club some serious financial clout. Qatari Sports Investment is run by Paris St-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

If Newcastle do decide to let Gayle leave in the January window, they should make sure it is a permanent deal only. It does Newcastle no good to let Gayle go out on loan and then return with just a year left on his contract.

He is unlikely to get a new deal at the club even if he starts banging in some goals this season. If there is interest in a permanent deal for Gayle this winter, then Newcastle should give it serious consideration. Of course, a lot of it will depend on the wages that Dwight will accept.

    I agree with this we either use gayle or sell gayle.
    No loan deal unless they pay his wages and 5 mill loan payment. Well i would take that option if it was going to be put into a transfer pot.
    Gayle will.score goals in the championship.
    If your pushing for promotion in jan.
    A 5 mill loan fee and paying wages would give you excellent fire power for promotion.

    We should of took the offer for him last year.

    Ha, yes, I am sure a “loan deal” for the mysteriously injured striker would suit Leeds perfectly. Let Gayle run his contract down and reach 30 years old.

    The worst thing is they think ah its only newcastle theyll loan us him.

    If they want him that much buy him straight out.
    I actually like gayle and want him to do well, would love it if he had 2 or 3 seasons where he scored 15 to 20 goals in the prem. Just so he can say aye i was good enough for the prem.

    The Magpie Group
    What Mike Ashley is looking to do is far bigger than turning a football club into ad billboard, which really says something. At least you could say that new owners at some point would change that. What he is looking to do is bigger than the lies he has spouted throughout his time owning the club. We always say with a crumb of hope that he will leave one day. That a time will come when we can become a club trying to be the best it can rather than stagnate to serve a retail company. That one day we can get on being a football club, with the chance to can grow as much as it can.

    But Mike Ashley’s plans could even put a stop to that possibly, way after he has left the club.

    Imagine a club not able to grow because of someone who doesn’t even own the club? If Mike Ashley and Newcastle City council push ahead with their plans, this would be reality.

    We could be filling the ground week in week out with new owners and a large waiting list for season tickets, but unable to extend St. James Park, with any new owners hands completely tied. All the while other clubs overtake more & more in attendance and before we know it the one thing we’re most famous for, our support, would pale into insignificance.

    Barring the sports retailers signs bringing down the asthetic, St. James’ Park is a stunningly built stadium. It is unique in design and in location. Every fan is looking forward to the day the sports retailers signs, which are plastered everywhere, are removed to return the ground it its original polished looked. Looking at the ground developments over the years tell an amazing story, the view of the stadium when walking up is special. The skyline is dominated by the ‘cathedral on the hill’.

    Mike Ashley is looking to prevent the possibly of any other chapter being written in our famous ground’s history. All while he would be getting on with his life somewhere else, we would be stuck with the ramifications of his actions. It is unclear whether his motivation is purely greed, vindictiveness, an utter lack of understanding of a total indifference. It’s actually disgusting behaviour, whatever his reasons.

    The FA refuse to help, the Premier League refuse to help, despite the fact he is actively damaging their brand. All being well, the possibility of a 60,000 capacity stadium with the Gallowgate End matching the Leazes and a buoyant st James Park is completely in the interests of the governing bodies. Newcastle United Supporters Trust are fighting this legally and the Magpie Group take their hat off at such incredibly work. We all need to come together to stand up to this man. It is worth noting that Newcastle City Council need to take a long hard look at the marvels and who they are representing. Their actions will also have ramifications so long lasting they and their members will be remembered for all of the wrong reasons.

    Genjikai; the club should be able to get its money back on Gayle. What was the outlay, something like 10 million? Seems like a great transfer looking back. Enter the Lee Charnley to ask too much for Gayle and scupper a deal.

    ‘Four Bulgarian football fans suspected of subjecting black England players to racist abuse have been detained following police raids.

    “Work is still ongoing to identify others,” a statement from Bulgaria’s Ministry of the Interior said.

    Bulgaria’s football chief Borislav Mikhailov resigned on Tuesday.’

    There is a great photo of the famous “four” standing up against a wall. Send ’em to the Spandau Ballet is what I say.

    We look a much more formidable group when fully fit and available, and certainly if Bruce has finally figured out his best 11 and formation.

    The team that started v Man U would deservedly expect to start again this weekend and looks about right in the absence of Hayden.

    Maybe Krafth for Yedlin, although unlikely. Krafth has had an indifferent start, however he needs the time honored ten games before he can fairly be judged. I’d say he will most likely prove a solid addition and probable regular starter in the future, although of the three I prefer Manquillo, however it seems Bruce prefers the other two.

    I do not expect Matty Longstaff to keep Hayden out once he is available after suspension, nor do I expect the two brothers to win the midfield battle against a very good Chelsea engine room, but I am delighted to see them in there together and certainly see them along with Hayden as a high functioning midfield for us in the years to come.

    Be delighted with a point, ecstatic with 3, but my head says we’ll play well but lose by one or two.

    I was having a chat with a mate of mine (Leeds fan but at least he’s nearly Northern), down the pub last night about whether the Bosman ruling has been good for footie in general.

    The consensus was, it was needed as an employer can’t “own” you after you’ve finished your contract but, it’s helped (obviously along with TV money) both wages and transfer fees soar to such a point that the gap between the rich (Premiership) and the poor (the rest) has grown massively.

    Re Gayle, I wonder how I would think knowing I had no future at my employer, the fact I was getting £50k/week would soften the blow I guess.

    Good to see Bury have been given a 14 day stay of execution.

    DubaiMicky @29 – To be honest I think the pendulum has swung too far in favour of the players – so you get the likes of Colback & Saivet knocking back all offers so they can sit on their backsides and draw their massive salary. I’m not sure what the answer is but there has to be one!

    When you said that the FA and the EPL have refused to help address Ashley’s behaviour coz NUFC, have those bodies been formally approached, have they been presented with a case that attempts to give them grounds to investigate?

    Or, is it that anything that might have been submitted to considered as evidence of his misuse of the Club, has been rejected as too flimsy and wouldn’t pass any legal test?

    Nicky “nor do I expect the two brothers to win the midfield battle against a very good Chelsea engine room”

    And yet, we also didn’t expect Sean Longstaff and Hayden to win the battle against Man City in January. Pep said after the game “We could not deal with Newcastle’s Holding midfielders.”

    I think we’ll only find out by games against the best teams in the country how good Sean and Matty can be. I bet they’re well up for it and haven’t been distracted by any National team involvement.
