With West Bromwich Albion reportedly agreeing a deal with Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang for striker Salomon Rondon, on Friday that long running saga came to a close.

“Down Payment On A Free Transfer” – These West Brom Fans React To Rondon Deal Reports

With everyone knowing about his £16.5million release fee and that he wanted to make his loan at Newcastle United permanent given his own words about his future, it was only a matter of time before the 29-year-old Venezuelan international departed The Hawthorns this summer.

The transfer is officially undisclosed but as per the earlier speculation, he probably hasn’t rejoined Rafa Benitez for the release fee, they simply offered more than what had been put on the table by Premier League suitors.

Rondon departs with 120 appearances to his name at the club following his £12million arrival from Zenit back in the summer of 2015, and in his time with us, he scored 28 times.

Whilst his words during his spell with Newcastle may have soured the relationship for some, plenty were happy to wish him well for the future.
