Salomón Rondón

Position:
Forward
Date signed:
6th August 2018

Venezuelan international striker who joined on a season-long loan from West Bromwich Albion in summer 2018

Rondón, a Venezuelan international, joined Newcastle from West Bromwich Albion in August 2018, with Dwight Gayle going in the other direction as part of season-long loan deals.

Rondón said: "It's an honour to be here and I'm excited to get started with my team mates. "The clubs were talking for a long time and now I'm focused on the season to help my teammates to get the points to do well this season.

"It's one of the biggest clubs in the Premier League and I knew about the interest of the gaffer, so I'm happy to be here."

Newcastle United manager, Rafa Benítez, added: "I am delighted to sign Salomón.

"When we were looking for options up front, we knew how important experience would be. Salomón has been in the Premier League for a while and he knows how demanding it is.

"He, together with Yoshinori Mutō, will give us different options and will improve the competition between the strikers, which is always positive for the team."

Twenty-eight-year-old Rondón, who has 66 caps and 19 goals for his country, began his career at Aragua in his homeland before moving to Spain in 2008, where he enjoyed fruitful spells with Las Palmas and Málaga.

In the summer of 2012, Rondón joined Rubin Kazan, where his form alerted fellow Russian Premier League side Zenit St. Petersburg.

After just over a year at the Krestovsky Stadium, he joined the Baggies ahead of the 2015/16 campaign.
