Newcastle in fresh attempt to sign West Brom striker Salomon Rondon

Newcastle United are making a fresh attempt to sign West Brom striker Salomon Rondon.

The Mirror says Newcastle are back in talks with West Brom over a move for striker Salomon Rondon.

Discussions broke down last week, but Toon boss Rafa Benitez is desperate to bring in a replacement for Aleksandar Mitrovic, who joined promoted Fulham in a deal worth up to £27million.

Relegated West Brom are interested in Magpies forward Dwight Gayle, with a part-exchange deal for Rondon being mooted.

Venezuela hitman Rondon, 28, has a year left on his contract and has seen his £16.5m relegation escape clause expire.
