Newcastle rocked as Wolves open talks with Rondon

Wolves have opened talks for West Brom striker Salomon Rondon.

The Mirror says Nuno Espirito Santo has thrown his club's hat into the ring to land the Venezuelan striker after the Baggies failed to reach the Premier League.

Several clubs – including West Ham and Everton – are also in the hunt for a hit-man who scored 11 Premier League goals on loan at Newcastle United last term.

Rafa Benitez would be keen to re-sign the forward whose work-rate was appreciated hugely by the Toon Army.

But the fact he is 29 years old has counted against triggering the £16.5million buy-out clause in his Hawthorns deal, as the Tynesiders' hierarchy are not keen on paying cash for players with little sell-on value.
