These Leeds United fans discuss Newcastle United striker Dwight Gayle’s latest injury update from Steve Bruce.
According to Chronicle Live, Steve Bruce has stated that Gayle is expected to be out injured for between four to six weeks, after limping off against Wolves. Journalist Graham Smyth relayed Steve Bruce’s comments to these Peacocks fans.
Interestingly, Leeds were reported to have asked about the Englishman earlier on this month.
Here are some of the comments from the Leeds fans on Twitter:
Dwight Gayle out for four to six weeks with a hamstring injury, says Steve Bruce. What a time to be injured, when clubs were taking a look.
Someone could still gamble. But it's hardly ideal.

4 to 6 weeks is nothing. Still could play a pivotal role for the last 15 to 20 games

5m permanent is worth a gamble with an injury.

Still better than what we’ve got

Do you want Leeds United to sign Dwight Gayle?
What Do We Think?
We feel due to the length of time Gayle will be injured for and the amount of time he’ll need to get fit again, Leeds should definitely avoid this deal and hopefully move on to the next target, if they have one of course.
