Newcastle fans fume as Rondon deal stalls

Loads of Newcastle fans have been reacting to the latest transfer news, as a deal for Salomon Rondon has reportedly stalled.

According to Sky Sports, Rondon’s move to Tyneside has stalled, as Rafael Benitez continues the hunt for a new number nine.

The Magpies were in talks with West Brom over a swap deal that would send Dwight Gayle to the Hawthorns in exchange for Rondon.

A reporter from Sky Sports claims the Baggies are “keen to keep their existing squad” though, and that they are unwilling to pay Gayle what he makes at Newcastle.

While Rondon isn’t the marquee striker signing both Rafa and the fans have been crying out for, he certainly has the traits to be the perfect partner up front for Yoshinori Muto.

Rondon, who has 19 goals in 66 Venezuela caps, could thrive off the service from the likes of Matt Ritchie and Kenedy, so fans are understandably annoyed that the deal has stalled.

The 6 ft 1 beast reportedly has a £16.5m relegation clause in his contract, so it does seem rather bizarre to haggle over swap deals rather than just trigger his release clause.
