Dwight Gayle has taken to Twitter to send a message to West Bromwich Albion, as the striker returns to his parent club Newcastle United.
Gayle joined Championship club West Brom on a season-long loan deal from Premier League club Newcastle in the summer of 2018.
The 29-year-old striker was superb for the Baggies this season, as he scored 24 goals and provided two assists in 34 Championship starts, according to WhoScored.
The former Peterborough United and Crystal Palace striker was a key figure in West Brom finishing in the Championship playoffs this season.
The striker, though, was suspended for the second leg of the Championship playoff semi-final tie between West Brom and Aston Villa on Tuesday evening.
The Baggies won the second leg 1-0, but lost the tie 4-3 on penalties, with Villa now set to face Derby County in the playoff final for a place in the Premier League next season.
Gayle – who joined Newcastle from Palace in the summer of 2016 for a transfer fee reported by The Guardian to be worth £10 million – has sent a heartfelt message to West Brom on Twitter.
Gutted to finish the season like that as the team and fans were immense last night. I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone involved at @WBA for your support over the season it’s been a pleasure.
