West Brom Boss Has This Newcastle United Forward On His Short List: Should Bruce Sell Him?

According to a recent report by the Sheilds Gazette, West Bromwich Albion could orchestrate a move to bring Newcastle United forward Dwight Gayle back to the Hawthorns when the transfer window reopens in January.

The same source has stated that the Magpies striker’s name is on Slaven Bilic’s shortlist ahead of a potential move during the winter transfer period.

Gayle’s Frustrations At St. James’ Park This Season

Gayle is yet to make an appearance for Steve Bruce’s side this season and is currently on the fringes at St. James Park. He is behind the likes of Joelinton and Yoshinori Muto in the Newcastle pecking order with Andy Carroll also set to make a comeback later in this campaign.

The English frontman has lost his way at Tyneside and is in dire need of a change in scenery so that he can reignite his career in English football. Therefore, a switch back to West Brom in January could be an ideal move for him at this point in his career.

The 28-year-old still has a few years left in him to play a high level so the Baggies will benefit from re-signing him this winter. Gayle enjoyed a productive loan spell at the West Midlands club last season when he scored 24 goals and grabbed eight assists in 41 matches on all fronts.

What Does The English Frontman Offer On The Pitch?

Gayle has decent pace in his locker which allows him to make some clever runs behind the opposition defence. He is also accurate with his shots and can score some important goals for his team when playing with confidence on the field. However, he loses possession way too often and is not as creative as other players in his position.

Should Bruce Part Ways With Gayle This Summer?

Gayle is perfectly suited to be a prolific goal-scorer in the EFL Championship. Barring a late turnaround, it doesn’t seem like the English marksman will be able to prove his worth for the Magpies in the Premier League. Hence, Bruce is better off cashing in on Gayle and use the money generated from his sale to strengthen some of the other areas of his squad in January.
