Crystal Palace striker Dwight Gayle has been linked with several moves away in recent seasons with many clubs from the Sky Bet Championship interested in the 25-year-old’s signature.
Gayle is a non-league talent who was discovered by Dagenham and Redbridge, who in turn handed him his first professional contract.
He then moved to Peterborough United where he made a name for himself, earning him a dream Premier League move to Crystal Palace for a reported £3 million.
Despite the forward’s clear pedigree in front of goal, he has been pushed down the pecking order at Crystal Palace since Alan Pardew arrived, who clearly doesn’t fancy Gayle as a forward, despite the club struggling for goals.
The English born goal-scorer has only been able to make 11 appearances in all competitions this season and, despite scoring four goals, is still not being considered.
Palace have a range of talent in attacking areas such as Frazier Campbell, Emmanuel Adebayor, Marouane Chamakh, and Conor Wickham, so it is difficult to see where Gayle would fit in going forward.
A loan could be just what Gayle needs to get a regular run of games to show Pardew what he is missing out on.
