Darren Moore believes Salomon Rondon is at the right club

West Bromwich Albion’s Darren Moore has revealed that one of his summer departures made the right decision to leave The Hawthorns.

According to a report by the Shields Gazette, the Baggies manager has stated that Salomon Rondon’s switch to Newcastle United is a deal that will work out well for the player.

The Venezuela international joined the Magpies on a season-long loan deal, with Dwight Gayle heading in the opposite direction.

Speaking to the Shields Gazette, Moore revealed both clubs felt the deal was ideal and believed the strikers are both at the best clubs for their careers.

“We felt with Dwight coming here and Salomon going there, that was two strikers who were right for the clubs,” he said.

“Both clubs agreed. We felt Dwight would be a good fit here in terms of team dynamics and cohesion, and he has added to that.”

The Verdict:

West Brom certainly do not appear to miss Rondon at this moment in time, especially given how well Gayle has performed already.

The South American is thought to have been keen on a move to St. James’ Park following the Baggies relegation to the Championship, and has already started life fairly well, having provided an assist for their goal in the 2-1 defeat to Manchester City at the weekend.

It remains to be seen if the £11.7million-rated striker, as per Transfermarkt, returns to The Hawthorns next summer, or if Newcastle, or anyone else, look to make a deal for the 28-year-old.
