Fulham have reignited their interest in Newcastle striker Dwight Gayle.

Gayle has just six months left on his current contract but long-standing admirers Fulham are keen to take him this month rather than wait until the summer.

They have discussed trying to persuade Newcastle with an incentivised deal that will involve a small fee now and increase if Gayle, 31, were to help keep Fulham in the Premier League this season.

Fulham are third bottom and three points from safety but with two games in hand due to the postponement of their games against Tottenham and Burnley in the last week following a coronavirus outbreak.

They are short of striking alternatives to Aleksandar Mitrovic and manager Scott Parker has opted to field a team without a recognised frontman in recent weeks when he has been unavailable.

Fulham face competition for Gayle from clubs in the Middle East, who are also monitoring his situation with his deal running out.

Qatari duo Al-Gharafa, managed by former Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic, and Al-Duhail, led by ex-Nottingham Forest boss Sabri Lamouchi, are both keen, along with Saudi side Al-Shabab.
