Leeds United fans on Twitter have been calling for their club to sign Dwight Gayle from Newcastle this summer.
The striker has consistently scored goals at Championship level, and United fans believe he would be the perfect signing this summer.
Gayle may well be surplus to requirements at St James’ Park as he went out on loan this season to West Bromwich Albion in a deal that saw Salomon Rondon go the other way.
With the Venezuelan now being linked with a move to Wolves, it looks unlikely that Gayle will be heading back to the Hawthorns permanently as a part of a deal for Rondon.
The 28-year-old scored 24 goals in the league for the Baggies this season, and form like that has seen him gain admirers in Yorkshire.
Many Leeds fans are clamouring for the club to sign Gayle due to their lack of options up front and his incredible goal scoring record in the Championship.
Here’s what the Elland Road faithful have been saying about Gayle on Twitter…
Dream #LUFC signing? An obvious one, but I’d go all out to sign Dwight Gayle. Scored 48 goals in 72 Championship + play-off matches in 2016/17 & 2018/19).

Gayle, Roofe and Edmondson as our three options next season would be perfect.
