Salomon Rondon has explained that he wants to stay at the club beyond this season.
The Venezuelan is on loan from West Brom and he has managed to impress at his new club so far.
Signing Rondon on a permanent deal would be a superb move because he has already adapted to Newcastle’s style of play and the league.
Speaking to the Chronicle, Rondon said: “They know what I want and what my family want. I have spoken with them and made it clear. If there is an opportunity for me to be here – I’ll stay here 100%. If not, I will say thank you to everybody and see what happens next.”
West Brom will look to demand a premium for the player if they are forced to sell, but what happens if they gey promoted?
He is perhaps their moved valued asset right now.
They won’t be able to force him to stay and therefore Newcastle should have no problems signing the player if they can come up with a reasonable offer.
