Dwight Gayle has expressed his delight on social media site Twitter after signing for Newcastle United.

Gayle completed a move to St. James’ Park from Crystal Palace last week, after being identified as one of Rafael Benitez’s top targets.

Gayle has penned a five-year deal at Newcastle, after completing a transfer worth £10 million.

The 25-year-old forward is expected to be Newcastle’s main attacking threat next season, and he was very happy with the move.

“Buzzing to have signed for Newcastle United. Can't wait to get started at this massive club,” he wrote on social media.

Gayle is likely to play a key role as Newcastle aim to win immediate promotion back to the Premier League next term.

The former Peterborough United striker will be in competition with Aleksandar Mitrovic and Ayoze Perez for a first-team place.

Gayle has finished the last three seasons as Palace’s top scorer, but he has never nailed down a starting role at Selhurst Park, and decided that a move would be best for his career.

Newcastle have also signed Matz Sels and Matt Ritchie so far this summer.
