The Baggies are still looking for a new manager following Sam Allardyce’s decision to leave the Hawthorns at the end of the season, after they were relegated from the Premier League.

Chris Wilder, though, is a strong contender to replace Allardyce at the Hawthorns, as the former Sheffield United manager looks to get back into work.

There is still a long way to go before he is appointed, but according to the Sunday Mirror, the 53-year-old has already identified who he wants to sign.

Gayle is no stranger to West Brom, having spent the 2018/19 season at the Hawthorns on loan from Newcastle United.

The forward scored 24 goals in 41 games for the Baggies, helping them reach the Championship play-off semi-finals before they lost to Aston Villa.

But he’s out of favour at Newcastle and could be set to move on this summer, but he could cost a hefty amount given that he recently penned a new deal until 2024.

Here, we take a look at West Brom fans’ reactions to a potential Hawthorns return for Gayle…
