Newcastle fans react to latest Rondon speculation

According to The Chronicle, Newcastle United could be priced out a move for West Bromwich Albion centre-forward Salomon Rondon in this summer’s transfer window.

Rondon will leave West Brom this summer following their relegation to the Championship, and a number of clubs have been credited with an interest.

West Ham United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are all believed to be sniffing around the experienced striker, with the view to launching a bid.

According to The Chronicle, Newcastle are also interested, but the Magpies might well be priced out a move.

Rondon is believed to have a release clause in the region of £16.5m, but that does not include a sign-on fee or wages, which reportedly could make it difficult for Newcastle to pull off the deal.

The Newcastle fans have been reacting to the reports, and it would be fair to say that the bulk are frustrated with the situation.

Indeed, they are finding it hard to believe that their club will find it difficult to sign a striker from a team that has been relegated to the second tier of English football.
