Journalist claims NUFC are now ‘hours’ away from new signing after Mitrovic sale goes through

According to Hector Rodriguez – a journalist for leading Venezuelan outlet ‘Meridiano’ – Salomon Rondon is now just ‘hours’ away from completing a move to Newcastle after Aleksandar Mitrovic’s switch to Fulham has now gone through.

With the Serbian’s £22m move now complete (and it could end up being £27m with add-ons), the club have now taken in over £40m from player sales, and it seems as though Salomon Rondon’s arrival could imminent as a result.

Courtesy of a bit of Spanish translation, here’s what Meridiano TV reporter Hector Rodriguez has had to say on Rondon’s move in the last few moments  – with him suggesting that the West Brom striker will be a Newcastle player in a matter of hours:

With all the money taken in and the lack of money spent, you’d like to think this will be the case, but, as ever, we’ll take this as a pinch of salt – even if Rondon’s move does seem a matter of when and not if.

Time will tell!

  1. Heard Ashley is to give house of Fraser a 50 million loan. That’s brilliant I thought he was skinted? I said it recently he always has cash available to buy into a distressed businesses here and there but never for nufc. It has to generate its own revenue 123million in pl tv money, 75million owed from the sales of gini, sissoko, Townsend and Janmat. This man is a vampire and I wouldn’t be surprised if putting the club up for sale was all a pr stunt
