Journalist reveals deal NUFC have now ‘agreed’ with West Brom for Rondon – Player plus cash

According to The Guardian’s Andrew Ryan, Newcastle and West Brom have now ‘agreed’ a deal involving Dwight Gayle and Salomon Rondon – with us set to pay £3m plus Dwight Gayle to sign the Venezuelan striker on a PERMANENT deal.

The reporter claims that Gayle has now ‘agreed terms’ with the Baggies and that Rondon ‘will’ now sign for Newcastle United in the ‘next couple of days’ after the two clubs came to an agreement on the structure of the deal.

Despite a loan swap being discussed, it sounds like this will be a permanent deal – meaning Dwight Gayle’s career on Tyneside could be set to come to an end.

Here’s the big breakthrough on the deal according to the The Guardian reporter this morning:

The Chronicle have responded to this saying they’re ‘checking this one out’, but it sounds very likely that this has all been agreed now – especially after Mitrovic’s sale and news that Mike Ashley has ‘come around’ to the idea of sanctioning this deal for Rondon (a player who at 28 doesn’t fit into his buying policy.

If this goes through, do you think we’ve got a good deal here?

  1. Yes – we’ve swapped a Championship striker for a Premiership striker. Rondon may not be a prolific scorer but he is a right physical handful for defences (something Gayle wasn’t) and with Perez and Muto buzzing around this could be vital to us this season.
    …….and we’ll still have most of the cash there from the Mitro sale and Mbemba sales. Townsend and Bryan* in from those departures and we’re good to go.

  2. Some reports today say we are SELLING Mitrovic and taking Rondon on LOAN with Gayle going the other way. If that’s true it just beggars belief.

  3. A poor arrangement. Who will get the goals ? Lose Gayle and get Rondon – who has just as poor a scoring record. How will we be better off ? We won’t be. Be honest – if we had the funds would we go for someone like Rondon ? This is a deal that reeks of desperation. Can’t Newcastle’s scouts find anyone better ?

    No – Desperation would have been keeping Gayle.

    Generally a player is only as good as the team around him. West Brom were crap. Hopefully with better service Rondon will do better.

    With 10 days of transfer window left its a bit early to claim desperation.

  6. Some of you fellas make me laugh

    Rondon will be great for you. Benetiz will sort him out the poor guy ran his balls off for us Baggies with very little support. Basically he was knackered as any one but superman would have been

    He will get 15 goals for you this season. How Benetiz got your squad to.10th last season God only knows. He’s a miracle worker and all you lot do is whinge and whinge some more

  7. From a West Brom fan I think its pretty even, Rondon is a great hold up player and brings team mates into attack. Does have a problem falling down too often but is a real handful if someone plays alongside hm. As a lone striker he won’t pull up trees.
    Scores some great goals but some days days couldn’t hit a barn door from 5 feet.
    I wish him well. He will always give 100% effort

  8. West Brom are crap. Remind me how many points did you take off us. I was at the Hawthorns for our match. You were bloody awful and we gave you a point.
