Crystal Palace have accepted a bid for out-of-favour striker Dwight Gayle from Bristol City, thought to be in the region of £6 million pounds…
The writing has been on the wall for Dwight Gayle for a while. The arrival of Patrick Bamford and Connor Wickham in the summer relegated the 24-year-old striker to 4th, possibly 5th in the pecking order. Glenn Murray spearheaded a 4-5-1 formation in their opening match at Norwich, with Bamford and Gayle unused substitutes. Such is the strength in depth at Palace now that Yannick Bolasie was also benched, with Wilfried Zaha (a goal) and Jason Puncheon (an assist) providing attacking thrust from wide. Bristol City are yet to speak to Gayle – and he would have to accept a drop in division, of course – but Palace chairman has confirmed a bid has been accepted. The fee is reported to be £6m, which was the same amount Palace paid Peterborough in 2013. Aug 12 - 7:33 AM
