Newcastle United may lose up to six players in the January transfer window, including Dwight Gayle, according to The Chronicle.
As per the news outlet, Jacob Murphy, Christian Atsu, Henri Saivet, Achraf Lazaar and Rolando Aarons could also be let out through the door at St. James’ Park in order to recoup some cash for some possible new arrivals.
Does Gayle have a future at Newcastle?
Aarons may well be on his way to Huddersfield Town in the EFL Championship, while Rangers have apparently retained their willingness from the summer to strike a loan deal with Murphy, while Gayle only has a few months left on his current deal in the North East and he has not yet signed a new one.
Gayle and Murphy would be biggest losses to Newcastle
Given that both players have played their part for the Tyneside club so far in the 2020/21 term, both Gayle and Murphy could be the biggest losses to Steve Bruce’s team.
The latter has played in nine games in total in all competitions, scoring two goals and making a further two assists (Transfermarkt), while the former has recently shown what he can offer by scoring the winner for the Magpies versus West Brom with a bullet header that was described as ‘magnificent’ by Toon legend Alan Shearer, he also praised the ‘great cross’ put in by Murphy.
It is clear that both of these aces would be a miss to NUFC should they be allowed to leave next month.
