Newcastle close in on £20m double Prem raid as £13m Andros Townsend prepares to leave

Gayle has scored 26 goals in 74 appearances in all competitions for Palace since arriving at Selhurst Park in a £4.5m deal from League One side Peterborough in July 2013.

Newcastle have also met the £10m asking price for Scotland international Ritchie and the 26-year-old will meet with Toon officials tomorrow to finalise personal terms.

Ritchie was a near ever-present for Bournemouth last season, the club’s first in the Premier League, scoring four goals in 37 appearances.
