Have Newcastle Priced Striker Out Of A Move?


As expected, there is a lot of interest in the services of Dwight Gayle from Championship clubs this month. A return to West Brom where Dwight spent last season on loan is again making the rounds.

Nottingham Forest and Leeds United are also said to be keen on the 29-year-old poacher. In fact, Leeds may have even already approached Newcastle about Gayle but will not have liked what they were told.

The Shields Gazette have details on Newcastle’s demands for their little-used striker. Citing reports from Yorkshire, Leeds have recently contacted Newcastle and been quoted a ransom to bring Gayle in this month.

Newcastle will only allow Gayle to leave for £20m. A 6-month loan could be done if a club agrees to a mandatory purchase clause of £20m in the summer.

In addition, a substantial portion of Dwight’s over £50k/week wages, as well as a loan fee, will have to be paid for any club taking him on loan for the remainder of the season.


If these details are accurate, then you can expect to see Dwight remain a Magpie this season. There is just no way a Championship club can afford Gayle under these conditions.

We have to believe Newcastle would maybe budge on a permanent move for the poacher. We think a fee in the £10-12m range would be a sound return on a player who just isn’t in our future plans.

The issue would then be Dwight accepting a lower wage packet, which he has been reluctant to do in the past.

Newcastle seem to be moving swiftly this window to bring in some forwards. They’ll want to have squad places available to do that. So we hope the club will waver on their demands to help move Gayle on this month.

    10 to 12M should be a fair price for a half-decent champo club. Asking for 20M is outright cheek.

    Sorry, but I really do think you’re barking up the wrong tree when you suggest that Ed and his family, NUFC to the core, would even consider such a proposition from Ashley’s PR firm. The thought if them selling their souls to Ashley is just incredible.

    I wouldn’t be surprised for one minute to learn that there are Bishop-appointed stooges implanted to provoke argument an division among fans. There’s no doubt that there are a number who post and do just that. Whether they are stooges or just narcissists, trouble-makers or genuine fans who hold views that seem to push against popular opinion, we’ll never know for certain unless they own up.

    Defends Jabba – No. as I said he likes to play devil’s advocate & worky ticket and expose downright lies
    Always takes his side – As above
    Always has the same views as the PR has – I don’t know what they are or where to find them?
    Posts PR stuff before its released to the media – I think that was shown to be your lack of knowledge i.e PEBKAC
    (Google it!)

    The problem with Dwight is that it’s only teams who are fighting for promotion who will take him as any under threat of relegation will not want to take his wages down to League 1. Any team fighting for promotion will know they’ll have to upgrade him if they are promoted as he doesn’t perform in the Premier League.

    That means that the clubs who should want him (Champo clubs) will only want to loan him, not buy him, especially with his £50k / week wages.

    If the club really have let it be known they want £20m for Gayle, it suggests they’d rather retain him and let his value diminish while paying him a massive wage as his contract runs down.

    Surely there’s more sense to get him out by reducing his asking price and possibly subsidising his loan wages for a while? Getting rid would open the door for an income who might be able to do a better job than Gayle.

    Do any of our finance-based posters have a clue what’s behind this story – if there is any substance to it at all?

    We should snatch anyone’s hands off if they offer 12 million, what’s the alternative he sits on the bench having the occasional cameo as he gets older and his value diminishes? That being said if it’s not getting reinvested in the team I could not care less.

    At 10 million we could sell Gayle especially with his current wages – any more than 10 million and we’ll be stuck with him as I doubt very much he’ll take a wage cut – why would he ?

    I just can’t see the need for P.R on here, football fans of the same team are always arguing about random events , couple that with the wums and wind up merchants then there’s no need for Ashley to pay someone to talk complete and utter claptrap

    You are the dipstick
    Try wriggling if you want but you said:-
    “If I were a PR company would I approach an individual to post answer no. Then how would I go about it? I would spend money by paying the owners of the said site to pick individuals at x number of £s per post to post”

    The inference it’s nufcblog.com you were referring to , is there for all to see.

    I thought Irfan Kahveci would have augmented our frontline reasonably at a modest cost. But then we have to first unload before trying to load up.

    If it gets us Bowen, I’d give them Gayle or 10 mill or both and even loan them Bowen back for rest of season to avoid the free for all to sign him in the summer.

    Then adding Lookman on loan with view to permanent plus a striker would be a decent window.

    This blog is an echo chamber of the same nonsense.

    Goldfish bowl.

    There’s not many of us here.

    This is very small website (no disrespect) and the only people here are… us.

    There is nobody else here.

    Nobdoy outside of the users who actively post/read this blog care for or are even aware this blog exists, nevermind our opinions.

    Think of this when you theorise the presence of Ashleys PR posting here.

    Nobody would waste their time with that nonsense.

    We all have varying opinions on the different states of things, we are never all going to agree… Some believe that it can only be some sort of ceazy, nefarious reasoning behind somebody posting a polar opinion to them… News Flash, it’s very normal.

    Thank you for your time,

    Justin Barnes.

    Lol, the blog has over 212 MILLION page views. Of course, it gets one every time you post a comment, so here’s a plus 1

    😉

    Anyway, I would argue that this figure alone makes it a significant source of NUFC-related sanity from the Harrisons and nonsense from the rest of us.

    Talking of the Harrisons, I haven’t seen The Wife or Neil posting recently in chat – I wonder if they’re still hung-over from New Year?
