Report: Dwight Gayle willing to leave Crystal Palace

The Crystal Palace Eagle

Swansea City, Leicester City and Norwich City are all reportedly chasing Crystal Palace's Dwight Gayle.

According to a report on the Daily Mail’s live transfer feed at 09:20, Crystal Palace striker Dwight Gayle is willing to leave Selhurst Park on deadline day.

Gayle has been linked with Swansea City, Leicester City and Norwich City in the Mail - but no move has materialised for the striker as yet.

Palace are understood to be listening to offers for the striker, as he has fallen down the pecking order following the arrival of Emmanuel Adebayor.

Although Gayle has finished as the Eagles’ top scorer for the past two seasons, manager Alan Pardew apparently feels that the 25-year-old is now surplus to requirements.

Gayle has not scored a Premier League goal this season, but that has not put off a number of top flight clubs from chasing the clinical finisher.

Leicester, Swansea and Norwich all want to snap up Gayle - and could try to force through a deal before deadline.

The former Peterborough United man is reportedly keen on leaving Palace, but will only do so to another Premier League club as he believes he has the ability to play at the top level.
