£15m-rated Dwight Gayle 'likes' Patrick Bamford's Leeds post

Patrick Bamford of Middlesborough arrives prior to the Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round match between Middlesbrough and Accrington Stanley at Riverside Stadium on January 28, 2017 in...

Leeds United fans would love the £15 million-rated star.

Dwight Gayle of West Bromwich Albion looks on at the Bet365 Stadium on February 09, 2019 in Stoke on Trent, England.

Leeds United fans earlier this week called on their club to sign Dwight Gayle.

Newcastle United had just broken their club-record transfer fee on Joelinton, lessening Gayle's importance on Tyneside, and the Whites had just been rocked by the news that Kemar Roofe would miss the first month.

With that in mind, you could forgive Leeds supporters for thinking that going for the 29-year-old hitman made sense.

And the player himself might've just added fuel to the flames in that regard.

 

Gayle, who was tentatively linked to Leeds earlier this summer [Team Talk], has 'liked' an Instagram post uploaded by Whites striker Patrick Bamford.

It should be noted that there is very little link between Gayle - who played alongside Bamford at Crystal Palace - and Leeds at the moment.

But Gayle, valued at £15 million [The Sun], may be on the move and the West Yorkshire side should absolutely take a look at signing him if Steve Bruce makes him available.

He scored scored 24 times in 34 Championship starts for the Baggies last season and, at this level, he can be devastating, as his goal return indicates.

Dwight Gayle controls the ball during the Newcastle United Pre Season Training Session at the Sporting Clube de Braga on July 30, 2018, in Braga, Portugal.
