Newcastle United fans on Twitter begin to turn on Dwight Gayle

As ever with Newcastle United, the fans are fuming. Indeed, it’s been yet another difficult summer for supporters as problems between both Mike Ashley and Rafa Benitez rear their ugly heads again. With teams around the Magpies strengthening, their lack of action in the market is a real worry. 

All of that was compounded earlier today following reports from Sky Sports that a potential swap deal for Dwight Gayle and Salomon Rondon had stalled. While a move for the Venezuelan may not be the most inspiring, he’d at least be a body to replace Aleksandar Mitrovic, so the idea of missing out on another target is very scary indeed.

Though Ashley is usually the man the Geordie faithful fume out, claims that Gayle is asking for too much money from the Baggies have also invoked their ire.

With that in mind, here’s a closer look.
