Gayle deal alive as West Brom reopen Rondon talks with Newcastle

Muto-Rafa Benitez

Muto-Rafa Benitez

Newcastle United have finally announced another new signing as they have snapped up Japanese global Yoshinori Muto from Bundesliga side Mainz.

Benitez and the Newcastle fans' frustration at owner Mike Ashley's refusal to match the big spending of their Premier League competitors has continued for another transfer window as Ashley refused to meet West Brom's asking price for a permanent transfer.

"Then we finished 10th and credit to our players, but I still thought we could do something more to be closer".

West Brom were beaten 2-1 by Bolton in their Championship opener on Saturday and with the addition of Dwight Gayle maybe West Brom will turn around this bad start.

Venezuelan global Rondon may not be the most prolific striker, hitting just 24 goals in 108 Premier League games for the Baggies, but he has the physicality and work rate Benitez is looking for. "They made me feel at home from day one and I'll be eternally grateful for how they supported my family and I".

It has taken longer than Washington had hoped, but a U.S. state department official says the process so far has been smooth. A second meeting between Trump and Kim has not been planned at this time, according to a person familiar with the process.

Obviously they haven't spent any money, but Newcastle have confirmed the signing of Salomón Rondón from West Bromwich Albion.

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

"Things are not going well off the pitch and you can see a reflection of that on the pitch".

The striker is however not the only Baggies player that we are looking at with both the Daily Mail and the Sun reporting that Kieran Gibbs could be an option if a move for PSG's Stanley N'Soki doesn't work out.
