Salomon Rondon closes in on West Brom exit as new club prepares for £16.5m deal – Report

According to reports in China, Rafa Benitez’s Dalian Yifang are now preparing for the arrival of former Newcastle United striker Salomon Rondon.

This comes from Beijing-based outlet Titan Sports, who claim that Chinese Super League side will release Nyasha Mushekwi – with his exit set to free up a ‘foreign-player spot’ and allow for Rondon’s arrival.

Sky Sports confirmed Rafa Benitez’s interest in Rondon over the weekend, and although it was reported on Sunday night that the deal had ‘hit a snag’, it looks like it’s back on.

Wolves, West Ham, Marseille, Fenerbahce and ourselves have all been heavily linked with the Venezuela – who’s future was put on hold after his involvement in this summer’s Copa America – however it looks like Rafa is finally going to get his man.

If only Mike Ashley had compromised during ‘talks’ with Rafa and agreed to pay Rondon’s £16.5m release clause.



A month or two later and not only have we lost both and top scorer Ayoze Perez, we’re now set to appoint Championship manager Steve Bruce – a sad reflection of the direction we’re heading in for as long as Mike Ashley remains.

  1. Let’s hope the 16.5 million is upfront and is coming to the club for Bilic to use.
    OR
    Is it going straight to LAI.

  2. Well there you go. Player of the season and probably the best striker we’ve had since Demba Ba and probably the player with the best debut season and potential going to Man United (Longstaff)

    Ashley you are an absolute idiot who should not be allowed near a football club.

    Come on Steve Bruce, tell Ashley you want both players at the club if you are to become manager… why bother, we all know you haven’t got the balls and will be another yes man.

    Pathetic
