West Brom’s technical director Luke Dowling confirmed this week that Salomon Rondon would leave the Baggies.
However, first efforts made for another team to secure his services have been knocked back by the club according to The Daily Star.
They claimed that West Ham threw £10m at the Venezuelan forward but also included Sam Byram and Jordan Hugill as part of the deal. That, however, was swiftly rejected.
Upon seeing the news, Albion fans were quick to have their say on Twitter, but many were divided over different aspects of the report.
Some were keen to see the transfer happen as one supporter claimed Byram was exactly what they needed. Another fan simply suggested that they’d take the deal.
However, some supporters weren’t so keen, particularly laying into Hugill. One individual called the striker average whilst a further tweet said the Baggies should try and get someone else in the deal instead.
Rondon enjoyed a successful loan spell with Newcastle last season, finding the net 11 times but it looks as though his days with Albion are over.
Here’s the best of the debate.
Id take the 10 mil flat at this point so for me its a no brainer. Any deal involving gayle now looks dead

£10m + Byram and another I’d be happy with. Not too keen on Hugill though

accept. Sam Byram is exactly what we need.

Not a bad offer really but id want 14 million plus 2 players

Worth more than 10 in my opinion. Probably closer to 15

I would take that! Even though Hugill blatantly dived against us last season

Interesting. I think hugill is very average tbh but byram is decent enough

With a year left on his contract, I’d take that, decent package….maybe pick another other than Hugill though

Hugill is an utterly useless lump according to my boro supporting pals.
