West Brom need three things to happen to land Dwight Gayle this month

West Brom will need a sequence of events to fall into place if they are to secure former loan star Dwight Gayle this month, according to The Sun’s Alan Nixon.

What’s he said?

The Baggies hold the 29-year-old in high regard following a goal-laden spell at the Hawthorns last season where he found the net 24 times.

Albion tried to secure him again in the summer, but their plans were foiled over the finances involved in any potential deal, the Express & Star revealed they had pulled out on a permanent move over his £55k-per-week wages.

Is it time to move on from Dwight Gayle?

Yes. We don't need him.

Yes. We don't need him.

No. He'd win us the title.

No. He'd win us the title.

The Daily Mail claim Gayle could be available for an obligatory fee of £10m following a short-term loan while the Telegraph believes Newcastle’s demands are double that.

West Brom would ‘love‘ to sign the Magpies frontman this month, but Nixon says three things will need to occur for that to happen…

An unlikely move

The first event is Steve Bruce signing a new striker after his club-record £40m splash on Joelinton has failed to bring any form of return this campaign with just one goal in 22 appearances.

Although, Newcastle appear to have some cash left as they have been mooted by the Daily Mail with a £20m move for Nice midfielder Wylan Cyprien.

The next factor is Gayle regaining fitness after picking up an injury last time out against Wolves, he lasted just 28 minutes before being withdrawn, but reports suggest he won’t be on the sideline for as long as first feared. He could be back in training before the end of the month.

And finally, a combination of the above should cause the price for his signature to decrease while an agreement over his wages will also need to be met.

Nixon has tweeted in the past that the Magpies would be willing to see him leave for just £8m, which would contradict both of the figures mentioned previously.

If all three of those boxes get ticked, then there will surely be a joyous return for Gayle at the Hawthorns.
