Leeds United fans really want Dwight Gayle signed from Newcastle United

Leeds United may be on the hunt for a new striker, and Newcastle United's Dwight Gayle could be available.

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.

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.

The Mail have previously suggested that Newcastle would be looking to bring in £10 million for Gayle, if they were to sell him.
