Newcastle fans fearful over Rondon future

According to the Daily Mail, West Bromwich Albion have activated a 12-month extension in the contract of Salomon Rondon.

Rondon joined Newcastle United on loan in the latter stages of the transfer window, having been strongly linked with a move to the Magpies throughout the summer.

It was thought that Newcastle would pay the striker’s £16.5m release clause to sign him on a permanent deal, but Rondon only moved to St James’ Park on loan.

Rondon’s deal with the Baggies was due to expire next summer, which would have allowed Newcastle to sign him on a permanent deal at the end of the loan.

However, according to the Daily Mail, West Brom have activated an extension, which means that the Venezuela international is now tied to the club until 2020.

The Newcastle fans have been reacting to the news on social media, and many feel that Rondon – valued at £11.7m by Transfermarkt – will now be heading back to West Brom next summer.
