Newcastle United striker Dwight Gayle could be on his way back to the Championship in January, according to reports.

Recent reports suggest that Newcastle are prepared to listen to offers for Gayle, with Nottingham Forest and West Bromwich Albion both said to be interested.

Steve Bruce has always been positive about Gayle as a player, but the forward has seen limited game time so far this season.

In other news, Newcastle target Granit Xhaka has apparently demanded talks with Arsenal before any January move.

Bruce is hoping to tempt the Swiss midfielder to St James’ Park in the winter window.
