Newcastle sign Salomon Rondon on loan from West Brom

The loan swap between Newcastle United striker Dwight Gayle and West Brom hitman Salomon Rondon is expected to go through today.

Newcastle had already signed Mikel Merino, Martin Dubravka, Fabian Schär and Sung-yong Ki.

The Venezuelan global has made an instant return to the top-flight of English football after being a part of the West Brom squad that succumbed to relegation last term.

With the club's owner Mike Ashley actively looking to sell the club, it is believed that he has no desire to invest the kind of money into the team's recruitment that many of Newcastle United's rivals are spending.

West Brom will also welcome a proven Championship goalscorer into their ranks in the shape of Gayle.

"Then we finished 10th and credit to our players, but I still thought we could do something more to be closer". "They made me feel at home from day one and I'll be eternally grateful for how they supported my family and I".

Sam Allardyce has warned Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez that he is playing a unsafe game by publicly criticising his clubs owner for his lack of backing in the transfer market.

"If you are asking me if it is ideal, I would say no, because the way that I like to work is doing things early".

Rondon said in the club statement: "It's an honour to be here and I'm excited to get started with my team-mates". I have a lot of confidence in this group of players but they know we have to do something if we want to improve the competition between players.
