Dalian Yifang signing Salomon Rondon pays tribute to Newcastle, WBA fans

Salomon Rondon has paid tribute to Newcastle United and West Brom fans after signing for Dalian Yifang.

The former West Brom striker has completed his transfer to China where he'll be reunited with former Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez.

"It was an honour to play in the Premier League for four years," said Rondon. “I will never forget how you called my name. Thanks to you, I and my team mates have had great successes.

"A new country, a new competition that is also becoming increasingly attractive. The Dalian Yifang project is ambitious and I will give everything to help achieve those goals."

Rondón scored 12 times last season in 33 games for Newcastle.
