Stoke City eyeing Newcastle's Dwight Gayle after Premier League relegation

Stoke City eyeing Newcastle's Dwight Gayle after Premier League relegation

"As a football club we have lost our footballing way and our footballing identity, making poor, usually reactionary, decisions time and time again", a statement from the Swansea Supporters trust said last week.

He has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs already, but Wolves may suit him more, as he is more likely to get game time, and stake a claim for a place in the England squad.

For Swansea, their relegation ends a run of seven successive seasons in the Premier League. Wolves are looking for a keeper with plenty of experience, and Jack Butland has that, and the shot stopper is looking to stay in the Premier League after Stoke's relegation. No Premier League club have allowed more goals than Stoke this season. There have certainly been mistakes along the way and it is down to the owners to shoulder much of the responsibility.

"But the fact is, the club has been relegated because we simply weren't good enough over 38 games in probably the most brutal professional sports league in the world". We believe this is a time for everybody to pull together even through the heartbreak and bitter disappointment of relegation.

"I think the few points we did in the first 20 games - just 13 - made it hard to recover and achieve a better position", Carvalhal added. "We tried to win points but it was hard". The Swans have picked up three points and scored only two goals over their last eight games.

"Once the surprise disappeared they played at the top, they were better than us".

After the Swansea victory, Lambert said that they were in need of a rebuild for next season.

The home side's supporters chanted against absent chairman Huw Jenkins and American owners Jason Levien and Steve Kaplan all game and while a bright start at least promised a degree of hope, Swansea were made to pay for not taking their chances after Wayne Routledge missed a sitter.

The Welsh club were promoted from the Championship in 2011, beating Reading 4-2 in a pulsating play-off final, but their stay in the top-flight has now come to an end.

"Reading were in the final a year ago and this season they were fighting to stay in the Championship".

The Ayew brothers joined up at Swansea midway through the season.

Sebastian Vettel's struggles continue with 4th place at Spanish GP
Hamilton had a clean start, with Vettel moving from third to second by passing Bottas on the outside of Turn 1. It looks different and it looks wrong, but from the inside I think it was the right thing to do.
