Quite a few eyebrows were raised given the drawn out and rather bizarre nature of the arrangement with Newcastle United for Salomon Rondon to head in their direction, with Dwight Gayle coming in ours.

I’d say we won that negotiation and now it’s about getting the 27-year-old tied to a permanent contract in the future if we can.

Least that appears to be the current consensus amongst Baggies fans, especially as he scored his fifth goal for the club in only nine appearances in 2018/19 as we put Millwall to the sword last weekend.

Moving into third place in the Championship table, we didn’t look like we’d lose against Neil Harris’ men and Gayle’s individual performance on the day simply saw him welcomed further into the hearts of fans.

Having hit the ground running in the way he has, undoubtedly he’ll be able to maintain that form – with an allowable dip or two – until the end of the campaign and if he can, he’ll play a massive part in keeping us in the promotion hunt as we look to bounce back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.
