Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to demand the signing of Salomon Rondon on a permanent basis, after the forward starred during his season-long loan spell at the club.
The Venezuelan striker signed from West Brom back in the summer, and has won the hearts of the St James’ Park faithful with 12 goals and seven assists in all competitions for the club.
Has Salamon Rondon had a better season than Bobby Firmino? Matt from The Magpie Channel discusses in the video below…
At 29 years of age, he probably wouldn’t represent the best signing from a long-term perspective, but his impact on the Magpies this season has been nothing short of sensational; he is a major part of this Newcastle side, and will be sorely missed if Mike Ashley doesn’t get him signed up permanently.
The former Zenit man scored in the 4-0 rout of Fulham on the final day of the campaign to hand Newcastle a 13th-placed finish, an impressive feat considering they were battling relegation at one time.
Let’s see what the Newcastle supporters have been saying about Rondon…
Rondon has to be the best striker we've had since Ba, maybe even better, he'd have been close to 20 goals this season had he had a full Pre season with us. It's utter madness if we don't sign him, but this is Ashley's #NUFC where sadly, madness reigns supreme.

Be absolutely gutted if we don’t sign rondon! When we had ambition we didn’t look to sell shearer! So why not sign rondon he’s still got 4 years! We should be looking to sign players to come and move on! Show some ambition. #keeprondon #rafamuststay #nufc

Goodbye goal for Rondon? Hope not. One of the most tantalizing figures to don the black & white. Despite his age, think it would be a very bad decision to not sign him on a perm. Major part of #NUFC’s success and avoiding relegation this season.
