Don't think there was any chance of him coming back, other clubs are interested and one of those will probably be looking at a permanent deal , best we could hope for would be a loan but he might not want a loan deal, Fulham would possibly appeal to him more than any other.

Can Barry and Livermore account for their whereabouts I wonder?

Will be really disappointed if Stoke get him on a loan,i can understand if Stoke or Fulham buy him outright,but if its a loan we really should be in for him £2.5m in wages is not much to get you out the championship and this season could be our last chance without parachute payments,im reasonably happy with the signings,but where are the goals going to come from Gayle absolutely guarantees goals at this level,im not knocking the Sawyers or Furlong signings,but would have rather sent this money on Gayle for one more season.

I also think he should be our priority as I believe he would thrive with our current midfield. Look how well he did, last season being played out of position. He's such an intelligent, hardworking, skillfull and ultra clinical striker, you know he will guarantee you goals. With our team I think he would easily smash 30+ this season.

I can see Newcastle pushing to sell him at his age, they know if they keep him until next season his value will fall further.
That said unless he drops his wage demands (which is apparently putting other teams off) I can't see him coming back here.
I'm sure we are smart enough to offer a decent wage and a bonus if we get promoted to Gayle if he'd accept.
Maybe he's after a longer deal and not a loan, who know's?
I'd love to see him back here next season, and the rest of the league would sit up and take notice. Sadly I can't see it happening unless Jenkins can pull a rabbit out of a hat

Gayle's asking price has reportedly been dropped from 20m to 15m after several clubs felt his wages are too high. Maybe time for one last swing at a Dowling special (8-10m offer with add ons/5m upon promotion) and a similar promise to Dwight (30k starting salary and rise upon promotion/goal bonus)? It'll be a financial gamble either way with his value set to diminish over the coming years, but if his goals get us up, he's worth his weight in gold. Worth one last punt imo.

Would be great to see him back, but as a professional,  he will be looking for his last big deal. The way things are now, he could end up in China.

not getting Gayle is something I can stomach in the grand scheme. I don’t think I can take him going there though.

They could sign Messi and Ronaldo up front, with their current manager they won't be scoring many at all.

Don't torture yourselves over it in the short term lads.

Just ensure you've got a plentiful supply of baby oil and tissues 'on hand' for August 8th.

If he arrives for the second cumming they could prove wise investments.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

I honestly don't understand our fans sometimes. The club came out at the start of the window and said we can't afford Gayle's wages, yet there's been constant uproar that we aren't signing him. I'm guessing these same people all buy whatever they want regardless of whether they can afford it or not? Thought not.

Gayle is 29 and his pace is one of his biggest attributes. Newcastle want £15m. Even if we could afford his wages I'd swerve it. A straight 1 year loan is the only way this makes any sense, and there's zero chance of that happening.

Gayle has 2 years left on his £55k contract until someone matches that he is going nowhere regardless of the fee. Those wages are only going to be paid by either a Premier League club or possibly a Chinese club. In Championship Fulham might but don't seem interested and Stoke might have some legacy contracts at the level but even allowing for the Coates backing aren't going to take on a new one going into the 2nd year of the parachute payments.

If there are no takers in the next week there might be a deal to be done on loan but that will depend on who will pay the largest proportion of his wages. I doubt we paid more than 50% of them last year and while I think Fulham might be prepared to pay more few if any Championship clubs will go higher.

On balance I hope we find a permanent alternative.

There's very little incentive for Newcastle to loan him out, his contract runs out in 2021 so by next summer he'll be 29 with 12 months left on his deal - his value would plumett, particularly on those wages.

I wouldn't be surprised if Cardiff, Huddersfield or Stoke do eventually get him for about 12m. Or maybe someone like Sheffield United will.

His wages present as much of a problem to those teams as they do to us.
Looking at his current deal at Newcastle he is costing them £4.5m a year i.e. wages £2.5m plus depreciation on a £10m fee over a 5 year contract (the fee has long been paid to Palace but that is not how the cost of transfers is accounted for).

Assuming he is sold for £12m and to make that happen Newcastle buy out his contract for £3m and his new club give him a £1m a year contract for 3 years. He is costing his new club £5m a year and that might be as a Championship club. That club also has the same issue with that Newcastle have with him now is that strikers heading into their 30's are very difficult to sell because clubs are starting to wise up to the fact that they often decline quite early in their careers.

Newcastle will loan him out if Bruce is not going to use him because that is better than getting nothing and another high scoring season in the Championship will enhance his limited value whereas a season as a largely none playing squad player would probably reduce to nearly zero.

If this is going to happen it will be a last minute loan deal. I assume Newcastle are holding out for a recently relegated side to come in and take him on a seasons long loan. If that does not happen then we might be able to negotiate with them if we have not already signed someone else.

Correct but I think Newcastle would rather send him on loan to the Championship than to a competitor in the PL. None of the PL clubs look likely to buy him, Sheff Utd and Villa have already spent loads on forwards. If Newcastle are sending him out on loan again then it probably comes down to who out of us, Stoke and Fulham put more money on the table.

Not immediately obvious to me how they would afford him. Do they have a rich owner?
