Newcastle fans react to Dwight Gayle extension

Newcastle United fans have been giving their reactions to the news of Dwight Gayle’s contract extension.

The striker was reported to have penned fresh terms earlier this year, but an official announcement never came – until today.

It had been thought Gayle had a new deal when he pictured training yesterday.

Today the club finally officially announced Gayle’s extension.

There new deals for Federico Fernandez and Jacob Murphy.

And Fabian Schar and Paul Dummett have had clauses triggered so that they will both stay for at least another season.

Interestingly, there is no mention of Andy Carroll.

Gayle getting an extension is definitely a little controversial.

The striker has struggled to score goals at Premier League level, and rarely featured last term despite Steve Bruce proclaiming to be a big fan of his.

It is not out of the question he could still be sold. Indeed, it was reported in May that the Magpies would sell if the right offer came in.

But realistically, he’ll be staying but.
