Newcastle boss Bruce eager not to lose Gayle

Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce is eager not to lose Dwight Gayle next month.

Bruce insists he doesn't want to sell £15m striker Gayle in January.

“He's been knocking on my door constantly," said Bruce. “He is in my plans. He is the most natural goal scorer at the club."

“I don't want him to go anywhere. I've always liked him. I tried to buy him three times. He's by far the best Championship striker there's been for the last five, eight years.

"I saw what he did last season at West Brom because he was in the Midlands. Right foot, left foot. How many did he score? 24 goals to nearly get them promoted.

“I don't want him to go anywhere and it would have to be a ridiculous offer and amount of money. Let's be fair, everyone's got their price but I don't want Dwight to go anywhere."
