Newcastle United face a battle to keep hold Dwight Gayle and Andy Carroll amid interest from Premier League rivals Fulham and West Bromwich Albion.

Gayle on Fulham Radar

Dwight Gayle has emerged as a transfer target for Fulham. The 30-year-old is out of contract in the summer and a lack of game time under Steve Bruce may force him to look at alternatives.

Cottagers boss Parker has admitted that he is a fan of Gayle. When asked if he was looking for attacking options, he said: “I think that is probably true.

“If you look at the balance of our squad, we only have one recognised striker in Alex (Mitrovic) in the building.

“A lot of responsibility is on Mitro, obviously Cav’s (Ivan Cavaleiro) been playing there and done very well, but it is definitely an area I would like to strengthen.”

Gayle has played 28 times under Bruce, scoring five goals, but injuries have severely hampered a run in the side during his time at St. James’ Park.

Newcastle Looking to Hold on to Carroll Despite West Brom Interest

Former Magpies boss Sam Allardyce is looking to bring Andy Carroll to The Hawthorns, but Newcastle have waved away an approach.

With Gayle facing an uncertain future in the northeast, the Magpies are reluctant to allow the home-grown striker depart.

Allardyce worked with Carroll during their time at West Ham United. Speaking ahead of the Baggies’ FA Cup tie against Blackpool, Allardyce said: “I’m looking for a frontman, but I don’t believe Andy is available at the moment.

“Steve (Bruce) like everybody else needs all his options at this particularly difficult time. I’m not looking at Andy.

“I am looking at a frontman and hopefully that will be coming through the door as quickly as possible, but that would be from abroad rather than this country.”
