While Steve Bruce turned to Dwight Gayle for this afternoon’s trip to Wolves, the Daily Mail suggest that Newcastle United are willing to allow the former Crystal Palace striker to leave on loan over the course of this month, albeit with a twist. 

As per the report, the Toon Army are eager to include a £20m obligation to buy in any arrangement were he to leave St. James’ Park this season amid reported interest from the likes of Nottingham Forest.

According to Transfermarkt, the 29-year-old has a rating of just £10.9m and it’s important to remember that West Bromwich Albion pulled out of a permanent deal for the player in the summer following his loan stint at the club, citing his ‘Premier League contract’, as per BBC Sport.

After all, he’s only thought to have cost Newcastle £10m in the first place and has just over a year on his contract remaining.

So, with that in mind, a lot of Magpies fans couldn’t believe how much the club were reportedly asking for Gayle this month, Here’s a look at some of that reaction.
