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?
