I wouldn’t been keen on us signing Gayle, I would much rather we went after the Peterborough striker Jack Marriott.

All I would say is that if he didn't have a £16.5m release how much would we be asking for him? One things for sure we wouldn't be selling him for that kind of stupidly low figure.

About 10 million. Bloke can’t hit a barn door and the goals are the same size in the championship

He still got the goal of the season for us.

goals are the same size in Spain, Russia and Europe too where he averages a goal every 2.3 games in league and European competition.

That would be why we rejected £32m from Tianjin Quanjian in 2017 then...

Obviously, but stating the club would be asking for £10m when they rejected £32m isn't an opinion.

Utter madness not to sell him for that sort of money when we had the chance. Could have made an extra £30m had we sold Rondon in 2017 (when we were already safe) and Evans in the last couple of windows (who we played better without over the last year). That alone would have paid for a new Halford stand. Club has legacy of not moving players on at the right time. We did the same with Berahino who we sold for £12m having turned down bids of over £20m.

You'd think he'd be sold for his release clause of £16m but clubs haven't rushed in yet, like they did for Evans.

Should imagine Rondon could be used as a deadline day signing by any club. So if he's still here on the 9th August it will be squeaky bum time if we've haven't strengthened adequately as a result of him being here. All someone has to do is meet that clause that day and we're in trouble.

totally agree, sheer lunacy not to sell him late on deadline day when we still had HRK anyway. He’s clearly not rated by anyone in football because no one has activated his 16.5mil release clause but Leicester activated Evans’ 3.5mil one very quick after arsenal and Man City didn’t follow up their large bids from previous windows.

There won't be much done transfer wise with the world cup being on this summer.  It's nearly always after the world cup when teams start moving for players.

I agree but it’s slightly different this year as the window closes earlier so the market should be heating up sooner rather than later.

Only leaves 3 weeks to get deals done after World Cup ends, and we will be 2-3 weeks into pre season training by then. I sincerely hope we get some deals done before then but it does seems obvious we won’t be buying until we get funds from sale of Rondon, Chadli or Dawson etc depart.

There are plenty of players with release clauses that haven't been activated yet. It's a bit naive to think there is no interest in him Newcastle for one, are 100% interested.

Was a good post until about half way through, because Rondon IS a £30 million striker, he's just got a silly low release clause which I guess we had to agree to to stand any chance of signing him in the first place.


Put it this way, when he's gone you won't see another as good as him for a good few years.

i agree with you totally. my use of the 15 million striker phrase relates to what we paid for him - and what we might have got spending 15 million elsewhere. i think i might be dead by the time we spend 30 million on a striker - and that is what replacing rondon would cost.

sorry my post was pure sarcasm and disbelief that people think we should have sold him with no replacement. Personally I think rondon is class and played right will score goals in any team, he’ll leave us and be successful.

If Stoke can get Joe Allen to sign a 4 year deal, we should be doing all we can to keep our star players (Such as Rondon, J-Rod and Dawson).

Wonder if there is a release clause in there that becomes active after 12 months in the prem...

Someone from overseas would have him if they were desperate and we actually transfer listed the bloke.
