The transfer window has been a fairly quiet one for West Brom so far, but it seems like activity could be about to ramp up with the price tag of a reported target revealed.

The Sun report via The Birmingham Mail that Dwight Gayle could leave Newcastle United this month for as little as £8m, with the 29-year-old striker hardly featuring for Steve Bruce’s side this season as stats from Transfermarkt show.
Do West Brom need to spend in January?
Yes, the squad needs that extra something
No, we're sorted for now
With Gayle still being seen as a hero amongst many West Brom fans, news of a cheap price tag was seen as music to their ears on social media, with a handful of supporters keen on the club acting upon this valuation Newcastle reportedly have on the attacker.
Here’s what some West Brom fans had to say on Twitter about Gayle’s transfer fee…
He’s worth a lot more than 8 million. Just hope we can get him back

Yes hes absolutely worth it, if this deal rides on 8m then its an absolute no brainer cant even believe its a topic of discussion. 8m today isnt what it used to be , when you think that Palace paid 32 for Benteke etc. Steal

With just under 200 minutes of first-team minutes played this season, Gayle could be a risky transfer for Slaven Bilic given how little he has featured this campaign.
