Dwight Gayle has been given a period of complete rest as Newcastle United struggle to get to the bottom of the striker's calf troubles.

We just can't seem to get to the bottom of it so it's now complete rest," Bruce said.

We've had scan after scan and specialist after specialist.

In 2017-18, Gayle missed just three league games through injury with Newcastle and played 41 times for West Brom while on loan at the Hawthorns last season.

Bruce, who previously tried to sign Gayle on a number of occasions, now hopes that a period of rest will help him get over the problem once and for all.

Gayle travelled to China with his team-mates for the Premier League Asia Cup but did not play and has been sidelined by a calf problem for much of the summer.

Steve Bruce is a big fan of Gayle and the Magpies' head coach believed it was important to hold onto the striker when he analysed where the goals were going to potentially come from this season.
