According to The Athletic, the 31-year-old will put pen to paper on a new three-year deal on reduced terms. That is despite Gayle starting just two Premier League games this season.

The Magpies striker’s current deal was due to expire at the end of the season.

Here is how some supporters have reacted to the reports on social media:

@jgray2706: Preparing for the Championship…

@mark_duffersg9: If anyone was in any doubt whatsoever, here’s your confirmation that we are accepting relegation #nufc

@Andy_Ebs4: Good preparation from the club for our pending relegation.

@albollands: Nothing says we've accepted relegation quite like this #nufc

@DANGERUS_DAVEY: Reduced terms, at least we will have a Championship striker next year to help us get back up.

@MagpieUK1971: He will be handy in the Championship, he gets plenty of goals there

@Jordanklink: A lot of people complaining. This actually makes sense. If we go down he is a proven Championship striker. If we stay up, we can use him as a back up or sell for a few million rather than him walking away for free.

@gilbertr0n: Win win, we get relegated and he is a class Championship striker. Stay up and can sell him for actual brainer unless you are Dwight Gayle.

@Ryan_May_: As much as I like Gayle, why offer him a new contract when Bruce refused to pick him even when we had no other strikers.…
