Newcastle set to let player leave on loan with obligation to buy – The Telegraph

The Telegraph have shared an update on Dwight Gayle’s future ahead of the January transfer window.

Mike McGrath reports that Newcastle look set to let the 32-year-old leave on ‘loan with an obligation to buy’ next month, with West Brom and Nottingham Forest both showing interest.

That said, it’s said that obligation to buy is dependant on either Championship side sealing promotion back to the Premier League.

Gayle signed a three-year deal with the club back in May, yet hasn’t started a single league game since. It was an odd renewal given his age and injury record, however I suspect it was only done to protect his value at a time where we could’ve lost him for nothing.

It’s time we signed a more reliable back-up option to Callum Wilson, although some feel it might be bad timing to get rid of a player so prolific in the Championship when we are heading in that direction as things stand!

Personally, I’d like to see him moved on so we can freshen up our attacking option – whether we stay up or not.

  1. About time.

    He’s an excellent Championship striker but he’s just not good enough for the Prem, and definitely not good enough for a club battling relegation in the Prem.
