A well as his goals, Dwight Gayle has also won a number of penalties for his temporary team.

West Brom’s Technical Director Luke Dowling believes the team could beat plenty of Premier League teams and thinks Gayle is a key player for them:

“I’d like us to go and challenge a few Premier League teams now.

“I know that we’d beat them.”

“We all know Dwight Gayle will score goals if he’s happy.

“And I say that about every level. I believe he can do that in the Premier League as well.

“A centre-forward relies on goals, so his confidence is high.

“It looks like he’s been here two or three seasons, he’s settled in that quickly.

“Apart from the headlines of him getting us goals there’s nothing to say, because he’s with us until the end of the season.

“That’s a straight season loan. There’s no recall.

“We’re happy with him, he’s happy here. There’s no reason to speak about Dwight Gayle. He can just carry on.

We all know the goal and the financial reward of getting back into the Premier League.”
