Aston Villa have been linked with a £4 million move for Peterborough United striker Dwight Gayle today (May 14).
Reports suggest that Villa boss Paul Lambert wants to add another young English talent to his squad. He could make his move as soon as Villa confirm their Premier League status for another season, which would happen tonight if Wigan fail to win at Arsenal.
Newly-relegated QPR are also understood to be tracking Gayle. QPR boss Harry Redknapp watched the 22 year-old striker in action on the final day of the last Championship season at Crystal Palace.
Gayle’s stock is currently high having scored 13 goals in 27 appearances in his first season in the Championship.
Posh paid Dagenham & Redbridge just £500,000 for Gayle in January following a successful two-month loan spell at London Road.
Posh are understood to want more than £4 million for Gayle.
