Crystal Palace are paying huge money for Peterborough United striker Dwight Gayle.

The Sun says Palace could end up paying a staggering £8.5million for Gayle.

The Premier League new-boys have agreed a £6m deal for the former carpenter - who was playing for Bishop's Stortford in Conference North 14 months ago.

Yet Palace - set to hand Gayle £18,000 a week - could pay Posh a further £2.5m in add-ons depending on his success.
