However, we may have issues agreeing on a transfer fee for our top two left-back targets so a move for the West Brom fullback can not be ruled out.

The Venezuelan worldwide has made an instant return to the top-flight of English football after being a part of the West Brom squad that succumbed to relegation last term.

"I am delighted to sign Salomon", the Newcastle boss said.

Even many Manchester United fans can now find a soft spot for the former Liverpool manager, who currently finds himself struggling to cope with life at Newcastle.

Switzerland worldwide defender Fabian Schar has the makings of a £3m bargain while Ki Sung-Yeung looks an astute free transfer.

'It's an honour to be here and I'm excited to get started with my team mates, ' he said.

"It's one of the biggest clubs in the Premier League and I knew about the interest of the gaffer, so I'm happy to be here".

Switzerland defender Fabian Schar and South Korean midfielder Ki Sung-yueng have also arrived, while Chelsea midfielder Kenedy has returned on a season-long loan deal after impressing during a six-month spell last campaign.

Gayle has shown that he can score goals for Newcastle but has not been consistent enough to make a lasting impression in the Premier League.

With West Brom manager Darren Moore interested in bringing Gayle to the Hawthorns, the swap deal may yet have life.

"Then we finished 10th and credit to our players, but I still thought we could do something more to be closer".
