Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has stated on social networking site Twitter that Dwight Gayle would be a good signing for Newcastle United or Norwich City.
According to latest media reports, Championship duo Newcastle and Norwich are interested in signing Gayle from Crystal Palace in the summer transfer window.
The Sun claimed at the weekend that Newcastle are keen on recruiting the 25-year-old striker this summer and are willing to pay as much as £10 million in transfer fees.
The Chronicle reported earlier this month that Norwich are also interested in the former Peterborough striker.
I'd say so yep. Golden boot winner in champ if true & would nail them on for promotion imo https://t.co/3m3B7rSDzS— Darragh MacAnthony (@DMAC102) June 25, 2016
If Norwich had any sense they'd buy him. £10 mill? Too cheap imo. His goals would hair mate promotion £150 mill! https://t.co/FhDrY7kSOs— Darragh MacAnthony (@DMAC102) June 25, 2016
Gayle scored three goals and created eight chances in 16 Premier League appearances for Palace during the 2015-16 season.
During the 2014-15 campaign, the former Peterborough striker scored five goals and created 16 chances in 25 league matches for the Eagles.
Back in 2013-14, Gayle scored four goals and created two chances in six Premier League games for Palace.
