OFFICIAL: Dwight Gayle joins Newcastle United from Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace forward Dwight Gayle has joined Newcastle on a five-year deal, at the cost of £10m.

Gayle made just eight Premier League starts for the London club last season after falling out of favour, but he is keen to prove himself at St James’ Park.

“It’s a dream come true to be at a big club like this,” the 25-year-old said. “Newcastle has a massive fan base and a great history so it is amazing to be here.

“I can’t wait to get started, prove myself and score the goals that take us back up to the Premier League. It’s where this club belongs.”

The Magpies suffered relegation to the Championship last season but Rafael Benitez has continued his rebuilding job at St James’ Park by securing the signature of a player who scored 26 goals in all competitions during his three-year stay at Selhurst Park.

Benitez told the club’s official website: “Dwight is a great player, a proven goalscorer, and it is fantastic news that he has joined us.

“He has a big personality, a lot of energy and pace. He is a good finisher also, so he will add goals to our squad, for sure. He knows English football well, too, and that is important in the Championship.
