Newcastle United's Dwight Gayle has spoken of his admiration for Rafa Benitez.

The forward signed last week after Crystal Palace accepted a £10million bid from the club.

And Gayle can't wait to play for United manager Benitez.

"It's a massive thing for me to be playing under a manager like that," said the 25-year-old

"For him to ask me to come to the club is a dream come true.

"He's been a legend in the Premier League and abroad as well. Playing under him is going to be a dream come true."

Gayle also revealed that ex-Newcastle winger Andros Townsend had recommended a move to the club.

Townsend joined Palace last week after deciding he wanted to stay in the Premier League.
