According to the Chronicle (yesterday at 19:11), those behind the scenes at Newcastle are not convinced that clubs from the Championship would be willing to pay between £12-15m for the services of at this point in the season. 

The 29-year-old has bagged 59 times in 100 second-tier games at that level over the course of his career but, as recently as last summer, West Bromwich Albion pulled out of any deal to sign him permanently after a successful loan spell, citing his ‘Premier League contract’ as a major reason.

Linked with moves to Preston and Nottingham Forest of late, Gayle has featured in just 150 minutes of first-team action in the league this year and his record of just 21 goals in 107 top-tier outings makes for fairly miserable reading given the Toon’s wider struggles for goals so far.

As per the report, the club have also ruled out the possibility of selling him on the cheap in order to free up space within their squad, so his future does look unclear right now.

With this story in mind, here’s a look at how sections of support on reacted after @NUFC360 relayed the story.
