Newcastle United fans have reacted to the question posed by the Chronicle on Twitter if they would like to see on-loan striker Salomon Rondon be offered a permanent deal to remain at the North East club when the season ends.
The 29-year-old opened his account for the Magpies on Saturday when he scored a brace in a 2-1 win over Bournemouth at St James’s Park and after a very slowly start to the season, the club’s fans are a bit sceptical if he will continue to produce performances like that.
Newcastle’s back-to-back wins in the Premier League have given their fan base something to smile about following a horror beginning to their campaign, but the fans are calling for consistency for the rest of the season to avoid facing a relegation battle.
Given that battle, most fans have indicated that they would assess Rondon’s position at the club if he manages to play a key role in them remaining in the Premier League.
Here are some of their reactions to that Twitter question:
I think he produced the best centre forward performance we've seen since Papiss Cisse left against Bournemouth. But yeah, he needs to prove his fitness and consistency before anyone starts talking about a permanent deal.

1 brace. We need to take stock-check. I thought he was superb on Saturday don’t get me wrong. Toon realism says be careful.
Is he liable for injury more than the next? Hope not. Showed exactly what’s missing! #NUFC

Seriously! The guy has had 1 decent game. Currently hell no. Give me 15+ goals and we can re-addesss the question. Plus drop 10kg.

Bare in mind he’s still not ‘fully’ match fit but he’s improved massively over the last two games & can only get better…
If he carries on like this as he’s looking like the old fashioned centre-forward we’ve missed then why not?
We’ll still need more bodies of course

Nope, he’s not really a prospect for the future!
