Newcastle striker Salomon Rondon admits he could return to West Brom

Newcastle United striker Salomon Rondon is delighted with his form this season.

Rondon has been on-loan at Newcastle from West Brom.

Rondon said: “Better with age? For me, yes. It's like a wine! I try to be healthy all the time. I am getting older so I have to work more than the young players. I have to work really hard and do my best.

“Maybe it is my last game here. That would be a shame for my family because they are settled here . It is out of my hands and I will have to wait. I am really happy here. My family is happy. But it is not down to me.

“We don't know what will happen with Rafa as well, so we have to wait.

“Now I have my mind on the Copa America [in Brazil, starting on June 14] with the national team. After that, we will see what happens.

“I have to wait and see if West Brom get promoted or not. This is the first reason. If they are promoted or not, I have to go back there. And after that, I have to wait. I have to see if Rafa stays. There are many things — Newcastle, West Brom, Rafa, me."

He has enjoyed wearing the club's iconic No.9 shirt and said: “It is my best season in the Premier League so I try to always do my best, give everything on the pitch and try to help the team."
