Leeds United fans on Twitter are intrigued by Dwight Gayle's omission from the latest Newcastle United squad.
Magpies boss Steve Bruce left out his £10 million striker [The Mirror] from the squad that drew 1-1 away to Rochdale in the FA Cup on Saturday.
Gayle has managed eight appearances but only one of those was from the start, culminating in a total of 151 minutes so far.
It wouldn't be a huge surprise if Saturday's omission was linked to a winter exit, and here's how fans of the Elland Road club reacted on social media.
Dwight Gayle isn't playing for Newcastle today. Could be good news for #LUFC if they're serious about going up this year.— Christopher (@ChrisMozzi) January 4, 2020
What a class addition Gayle would be for Leeds - and it just so happens that Marcelo Bielsa needs a striker.
Bielsa lost Eddie Nketiah this week as Arsenal recalled him over a lack of playing time under the Argentine coach.
The Whites already boast a nine-point cushion in the automatic promotion spots, but the addition of Gayle, who scored 24 Championship goals on loan at West Brom last season, would surely guarantee United a return to the Premier League come May.
