Newcastle fans react to Salomon Rondon’s new West Brom deal

Newcastle United supporters in the Transfer Tavern are very much looking forward to their side’s second Premier League game of the 2018/19 season when they make the trip to South Wales on Saturday.

Rafa Benitez’s men face Neil Warnock’s Cardiff City on Saturday off the back of losing their opening match of the campaign at home to Tottenham last weekend, while the Bluebirds also suffered defeat upon their return to the top-flight, going down 2-0 at Bournemouth. Yet several Magpies fans are confident that their team have enough to go to the Cardiff City Stadium and pick up their first victory of the campaign, with striker Salomon Rondon one man they are hoping can produce the goods this weekend.

The 28-year-old made the move on loan to St James’ Park earlier this month from Championship side West Brom, yet reports recently suggest that the forward has since penned a 12-month extension to his Baggies contract, thus meaning that he is no longer a free agent at the end of the season.

Thus, the Magpies will now be unable to land Rondon on a free come the end of the current campaign, and having reportedly turned down the chance to sign the Venezuela international permanently this summer, it appears that the club have made something of an error.

And news that Rondon has signed a new deal with West Brom, and thus the implications that has on the Magpies, has stimulated quite a response from several disappointed, irritated, but ultimately resigned Newcastle fans on Twitter…

Newcastle fans… what do you think? Let us know!
