Loads of Newcastle fans have been reacting to the latest transfer news, as it looks like Rafael Benitez is finally going to get his new number nine.
Newcastle confirmed the signing of Yoshinori Muto last week, and it looks like they’re about to add even more attacking firepower with the capture of West Brom’s Rondon.
The powerful 6 ft 1 Venezuelan international was left out of the Baggies’ opening day squad on Saturday, and reports suggest a deal is close to swap him for Dwight Gayle.
The deal is expected to send Gayle the other way on a loan deal, but we will have to wait and see the full terms of the deal.
Either way, it will be a huge relief for Rafa to finally get the striker situation sorted, especially given his comments on their dealings in the last week.
Fans are praising the heavens that they finally have a goalscorer, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Imo that’s a massive improvement, someone who didn’t play under Rafa, bringing in rondon who is a target man and muto who can play st and cam I’m very happy with that #NUFC

Time will tell I suppose Muto has had promising reviews so fingers crossed

Without a doubt – mitro and Gayle can’t hit a barn door

Very slightly, but it depends how Muto and Rondon settle. It’s underwhelming though.

Rondon is an upgrade on Joselu. Not worth considering Mitro since he wasn’t really here.

No. Rondon is rubbish – my mate is a Baggies fan and says they will be glad to be rid.
