Leeds United fans are keen to see Dwight Gayle snapped up from Newcastle United.
Leeds fell marginally short of promotion this season, despite starting the campaign so strongly.
Leeds were sitting at the top of the Championship at the start of the year, but they progressively slide out of the automatic promotion spots.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side then failed to get past Derby County in the play offs, and some Leeds supporters feel that a lack of investment in January was very costly.
The Elland Road crowd are now desperate for big name arrivals this summer.
And Leeds fans have suggested that Gayle would be a good player to target.
Dwight Gayle!! If #LUFC wanna show some serious intent for next season— LOVELEEDSUNITED (@kitchii_boii) May 20, 2019
Get Dwight Gayle in, Newcastle don’t want him, loan or go all out and pay £15m #lufc— Luke (@FazzLuke24) May 16, 2019
Think we might need to sign Dwight Gayle #Lufc— Championship Champions 19/20 (@NeilAllan88) May 16, 2019
A bit of a pipe dream, but I'd love to see Dwight Gayle at Elland Road next season. Imagine him under Bielsa? He'd have scored 30+ on his own this season. Sell Jansson and Bamford to get him, and keep Phillips, Shackleton and Clarke at all costs. #lufc #MOT— Tim (@lufcbug) May 16, 2019
Now we know our status for next season - can we please make our top priority signing a dwight Gayle or tammy abraham!! Muchos Garcias #lufc— Tony LUFC (@Tonylufc28) May 16, 2019
Gayle has a brilliant track record at Championship level, and scored 24 goals for West Bromwich Albion over the past campaign.
West Brom have decided against signing Gayle permanently, as reported by the Express and Star, and that could leave the door open for Leeds, if they can find a way to fund the move.
