‘Could make all the difference’ – BBC pundit urges Leeds United to pounce for red-hot forward

BBC pundit Danny Mills believes that Leeds United should sign Dwight Gayle next season after the 28-year-old scored 23 goals in the Championship for West Brom.

Gayle will return to Newcastle now that his loan deal with West Brom has ended, having enjoyed a red hot season at the Hawthorns, and may be available this summer having fallen out of favour on Tyneside.

Mills, a regular on BBC radio believes that Leeds are lacking a proven goalscorer and that despite Kemar Roofe scoring 14 league goals in 32 appearances last term, Mills insists that more firepower is needed.

Speaking to Football Insider, he said: “Leeds need a striker this summer. Their top scorer is Kemar Roofe, who’s scored 15 goals in total, which is not outstanding. He’s done well but it’s not enough.

“Leeds need a striker who can score 20-plus goals. You think of someone like Dwight Gayle, who is far more prolific, and he could make all the difference.”
