The 31-year-old forward, hasn’t had the best time this season when it comes to getting on the pitch. First off he had to recover from his MCL injury that he picked up in pre-season, and has only appeared 13 times in all competitions since then, with only two of them being starts.
But despite this, it would appear as though those at the club think that he still has something to offer them moving forward, as according to a report from The Athletic, he is set to sign a new three-year deal at the club, although it is said to be ‘on reduced terms’.
News which has surprisingly left many fans pleased when it was relayed to them by @NUFC360:
Will Dwight Gayle score 5 goals this season?
Given where Newcastle United are right now, perhaps it may come as a surprise that these fans have been so positive.
