Newcastle are trying to offload out-of-favour striker Dwight Gayle to a Championship club in January ahead of the first transfer window under their new Saudi owners.

The 32-year-old has fallen well down the pecking order at St James’ Park, and Eddie Howe reportedly wants to loan him out in January to free up space for new signings.

The Sun report that both West Brom – where he previously enjoyed a successful loan spell in 2018-19 – and Nottingham Forest are interested, but wages could be a sticking point.

It is claimed Gayle is currently on a huge £40,000 a week at Newcastle, despite playing just 21 minutes of Premier League football so far this season. 

West Brom are currently fourth in the Championship and eyeing promotion back to the Premier League, and Valerian Ismael is said to see Gayle as another goalscoring option for his side in the second half of the season.

Forest, meanwhile, have also registered an interest in the former Crystal Palace and Peterborough man, but could be hindered by wages.

Steve Cooper is keen on the striker, but Forest have significantly reduced their wage bill in recent years and may not be able to afford him.

Newcastle, meanwhile, are setting their sights on plenty of big-name players as the new Saudi owners get ready to make their mark on Tyneside.

The likes of Axel Witsel, Marcelo Brozovic, Ousmane Dembele and Darwin Nunez have all been linked with the Magpies in recent weeks.
