West Bromwich Albion have long been linked with a potential return for Newcastle United striker Dwight Gayle but it never seemed likely to come off. That didn’t stop The Telegraph from giving fans some hope on Monday as they claimed that we were back in for him, along with Leeds United and Stoke City, but their report even admitted that new manager Steve Bruce was adamant he wanted to keep him – so it was typical rumour mill fare at this time of year.

With plenty of fans expressing their excitement that a deal could now be back on for the 24 goal striker, Express and Star journalist Matt Wilson had the predictably bad news on Tuesday as he repeated that a deal was incredibly unlikely, as Newcastle’s Board would prefer a straight sale and even if a loan was ultimately on the cards, we are back to the wage issue as addressed by Technical Director Luke Dowling back in May.
