Newcastle United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the signing of Dwight Gayle from Crystal Palace.
Newcastle got relegated from the Premier League at the end of the 2015-16 campaign and will play in the Championship next season.
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 United 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.
The former Peterborough striker is a good player, and he should prove to be a decent signing for Newcastle.
What Gayle needs at the moment is regular playing time, and he will be determined to impress manager Rafael Benitez during pre-season training.
Newcastle and Palace fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the transfer of Gayle.
