​Newcastle United are open to offers for Dwight Gayle as the striker looks set to leave Tyneside in search of regular first-team football, with former club West Bromwich Albion keen on re-signing him. 

Gayle joined the Baggies on a season-long loan at the start of the 2018/19 campaign, scoring 23 goals and providing eight assists in 39 games in the Championship.

However, he's found minutes hard to come by at Newcastle since returning from a calf injury in October - playing just five minutes in two substitute appearances against ​Chelsea and ​Wolves last month - and is reportedly looking for a January exit to resurrect his career.

Seemingly frozen out at Newcastle, ​The Chronicle claim that the ​Magpies are open to listen to offers made for the 29-year-old with a view of selling him permanently and reinvesting the funds. 

Moreover, according to ​The Telegraph​West Brom are leading the way for the Englishman's signature after he was voted the Baggies' Supporter's Player of the Season for 2018/19.

Although Steve Bruce is said to be a big fan of Gayle, Newcastle's summer signings of Joelinton from Hoffenheim and Allan Saint-Maximin from Nice have limited Gayle's playing time, and an exit now seems inevitable.

Mike Ashley was reportedly hoping to land around £20m for the services of Gayle, but that sum is now believed to be significantly lower due to the forward's lack of playing time. 

The club will, however, look to reinvest any funds they acquire in January as Bruce looks to reinforce his attacking options, as they have only managed to find the net 11 times in 12 ​Premier League games so far this season.

Newcastle face ​Aston Villa at Villa Park on Monday night as the Magpies return to Premier League action, before hosting ​Manchester City at St James' Park five days later.
