Newcastle have reportedly named their price for Norwich City transfer target Dwight Gayle ahead of the summer.

According to The Evening Standard, via HITC, Newcastle are demanding £20m for Gayle to leave the club on a permanent basis.

Norwich are thought to be considering a swoop for Gayle if they fail to sign Rhodes on a permanent deal following his loan spell at the club last season.

However, sporting director Stuart Webber has already claimed that Norwich will have one of the lowest budgets in Premier League history next season, which automatically rules out a £20m move for Dwight Gayle.

This means that, unless Newcastle drastically lower their asking price for the striker, Norwich are unlikely to be in the race to sign Gayle for much longer. 

Gayle is a man in-demand after he scored 24 goals in the Championship on loan to West Brom this season, having fallen out-of-favour at Newcastle.
