West Bromwich Albion fans are urging Newcastle United’s Dwight Gayle to return to the Hawthorns next season on Twitter.
Gayle has spent the past campaign on loan with the Baggies from Newcastle, but he may well have played his last match for Albion now.
West Brom were unable to progress in the play-offs as they were beaten on penalties in midweek by Aston Villa.
And Gayle has now said goodbye to West Brom’s fans, as he prepares to return to Newcastle.
Gutted to finish the season like that as the team and fans were immense last night. I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone involved at @WBA for your support over the season it’s been a pleasure.— dwight gayle (@dwightgayle) May 15, 2019

Whether Newcastle will opt to keep Gayle remains to be seen.
Newcastle and West Brom traded strikers last summer, with Salomon Rondon heading to St. James’ Park, and the deal worked out brilliantly for both sides.
Newcastle are now thought to want to keep Rondon, while West Brom are desperate to retain Gayle.
In total, Gayle scored 24 Championship goals for the Baggies over the course of the campaign.
