It seems all the paper talk regarding Dwight Gayle’s move to Newcastle United has come to fruition with the 25-year-old reportedly close to agreeing terms with the Magpies.
After a frustrating season at Crystal Palace, it seems the winger has traded a life of substitute appearances under Alan Pardew in the Premier League for seemingly a first team berth in the Championship with Rafa Benitez.
With other potential deals coming thick and fast and the rumours hotting up, this summer could prove to be one of the busiest yet for Newcastle United.
The question is, how will he fit into Rafa and the club’s long term plan? Was he simply signed on the pretence of getting us back up to the football league summit OR assuming we get there, does Benitez believe he can kick on in the North East and be one of the main men to help get us back to where we belong?
