Dwight Gayle

Position:
Striker
Date signed:
1st July 2016

A clinical finisher with outstanding movement, goal scorer Dwight Gayle signed a long-term deal with the Magpies after arriving from Crystal Palace in summer 2016.

Dwight began his youth career with Arsenal but after being released as a teenager, he took the route less travelled and has admirably worked his way up from non-league.

His journey to the top has seen him enjoy spells at Stansted and Dagenham and Redbridge, before prolific loan spells at Bishop’s Stortford and Peterborough United saw him earn a move to the Posh on a permanent deal in January 2013.

Dwight would spend just six months at London Road before the Premier League inevitably beckoned.

He joined Crystal Palace in the summer of 2013 and continued his fine form, finishing as the club’s top scorer in each of his three seasons at Selhurst Park.

Moving to St. James’ Park, he was given the club’s famous number 9 shirt at the start of the 2016/17 season and true to form, he finished as the club's top scorer - with the distinction of having the best minutes-per-goal ratio in the Championship.
