English Championship outfit Nottingham Forest are reportedly interested in signing Dwight Gayle ahead of the January transfer window according to Shields Gazette.
Gayle made his first appearance for the 2019/20 season in Newcastle United's 1-0 loss at the hands of Chelsea over the weekend.
The 29-year-old striker missed the start of the season after being on the sidelines with a calf injury.
The Athletic are of the belief that Nottingham Forest have joined a bunch of Championship clubs who are keen on Gayle's services.
The striker was shipped out on loan to West Bromwich Albion last season where he made a name for himself as a prolific feature in the squad.
