Salomon Rondon sends heartfelt message to West Brom fans after joining Newcastle

  • Rafa Benítez's angry message to Newcastle United owner

But Benitez clearly feels more must be done, adding: "I am not happy we are looking to just survive every year".

West Brom have landed Newcastle forward Dwight Gayle in exchange for Rondon, with the Magpies striker joining the Championship outfit on a loan deal, too.

"I have a lot of confidence in this group of players but they (the club) know we have to do something if we want to improve the competition between players", Benitez said after yesterday's 1-0 pre-season home defeat to Augsburg.

Rondon is Newcastle's sixth summer addition, alongside Martin Dubravka, Kenedy, Ki Sung-yueng, Fabian Schar and Yoshinori Muto.

"The clubs were talking for a long time and now I'm focused on the season to help my team mates to get the points to do well this season".

Every top flight club must assist the Premier League's host broadcasters as they gather video footage ahead of the new campaign.

He said: "The manager attracted me".

Negotiations to make the deal happen have been tough, but a breakthrough has been made and Rondon is set to be playing his football in the Premier League this season.

But former Sky Sports presenter Richard Keys has no such sympathy for Benitez as he took to Twitter to criticise the Newcastle manager for airing his worries.

Formerly of Malaga, Las Palmas and Zenit St Petersburg, Rondon is on the move after three years with West Brom, as he was always unlikely to stay and play in the Championship following their relegation. "He's really enthusiastic about my game and I'm buzzing to come down and I can't wait to get started".
