Newcastle United line up their next great no.9

By Mark Peters IN General,Transfers - 20:00 Jun 7th 2016

Having struggled in the Premier League in recent times, relegation to the Championship should provide Newcastle with an opportunity to rebuild and come back stronger.

Rafael Benitez will want to keep hold of his best players, but Andros Townsend’s England ambitions may result in him moving to Crystal Palace.

DWIGHT GAYLE

This may not be the only transfer between the two teams, however, with reports in the Newcastle Chronicle suggesting that Dwight Gayle could move the other way.

Opportunities have been somewhat limited for the 25-year-old since he made the switch to Selhurst Park at the beginning of the 2013/14 season, with just 27 of his 64 top-flight appearances for the club coming as a starter:

Despite this, Gayle has still helped himself to 15 Premier League goals, just one fewer than Papiss Demba Cisse has managed during the same period for the Magpies.

The livewire striker also boasts an excellent record at Championship level, having scored 13 times for Peterborough, as well as significantly boosting their points per game average, when joining them midway through the 2012/13 campaign:
