I don't think we'll get £16.5m for Rondon. He's on his last season and agents and clubs know that.

Am I missing something with all the hate to Rondon? Not sure what the lads done too wrong to be honest. Played majority of his football with us under negative,drab clueless managers and always gave 100%. Yes he missed chances and yes that clearly knocked his confidence but he's always been a good servant to us cant think of any strops ( apart from one with pulis or under pulis when he took his shirt off and threw it in the tunnel (not sure if I've said the rumour completely correctly just can't remember the exact incident)). Hopefully we can do something with Gayle if that move is potentially back on or somewhat viable now Slaven is here. Good luck for next season Salomon wherever it may be

I have no problems with players moving on or wanting to move on, for whatever reasons.  At the end of the day this is just a job to them.  I am sure most of us would not turn their nose up at moving to a different company on more money.

Agreed. As long as they are professional I don't have a problem. Dawson being a prime example, excellent for us and had a good year last season despite lots of unjustified stick for wanting a move back to the PL - his header that almost got us to Wembley.  I've given Rondon loads of stick for his awful form in 2017/18 but I don't hold it against him for wanting a transfer. That's football.

Mate, Dawson was dogsh*t for 90% of last season and thats why he got abuse, at fault for so many goals it was untrue!

He went on strike FFS.  You may have no problem with a multimillionaire who we made take the p1ss out of the club but some of us don't take too kindly to it.  Rondon has more class and ability in his little toe than Dawson ever has.

Dawson played 43 games last season - not very good at going on strike.
I can’t share your hysteria. Dawson has consistently been one of our best players over the last 5 years and played outside his preferred central role for years without kicking off. I’ve no problem with him and thought his form last season was decent.

In football, as in most walks of life, being in the right place at the right time is everything when searching for a Head Coach and / or player. I wonder?

He was never coming to us. I don't know why people keep going on about it. It won't make it happen, it's not going to happen!

there was always a possiblity as long as the Rondon deal was on the table but no way now.

He will be snapped up by another championship side such as  Fulham and then deliver 20+ goals for them guaranteed.

I imagine Newcastle will want to bring in a striker before loaning out Gayle again and they'll have to bring in a manager first. With only 6 weeks to go until the close of the window, I fancy he'll be staying at Newcastle now.

Reading the E&S Dowling says that as the weeks go on the bids might get bigger for Rondon. what does this mean because I've read a few times on here that he has a release clause of a certain value.

http://c.newsnow.co.uk/A/990240188?-11200:789

"There is interest in Salomon and I’d be surprised if there wasn’t," said Dowling. “He’s had a good season with Newcastle – a year as a centre-forward and we all know what that means to Newcastle supporters.

“His season was the right way around, rather than starting great and fading, he finished the season really strongly.

“So if we do want to sell him that’s great for us but we’re anticipating as the weeks go on that the offers made for him might get bigger.

I think although he has a release clause nobody is bidding it yet, probably hoping to get him below that level. As the weeks go by teams maybe become a little more desperate and eventually bid the release clause or at least closer to it than has been bid up to now.

I think the situation with Newcastle is quite straight forward Rondon won't be going there now that Benetiz has left. With regard to the fee it is capped at the release clause but that won't stop clubs trying to lowball us on it. Ultimately this is a game of chicken and it is one that if as reported his wages don't flex down that we can't afford to lose so somewhere in the next 6 weeks he will be sold.

“So if we do want to sell him that’s great for us but we’re anticipating as the weeks go on that the offers made for him might get bigger.

This got my attention too. What I read between the lines is: 1) they're not getting offers that are activating the clause but instead offers below the 16.5 million, and 2) they're going to sell him regardless at the highest bidder if the bids only come below the 16.5 million because A) they're not interested in paying his wages, and B) they rather get some sort of fee in return for letting go of him now than getting nothing for it if he leaves on a free in the winter or later.

The silver lining here would be if the fee gets put back into the transfer budget. Can only hope.

There's always a chance he plays his last season with us in the Championship if no one bites for him - or we possibly sell him to an obscure location such as China or USA.

It's easy to work out from Dowling's comments that Rondon will be sold in the summer whether its for his release clause of simply to the highest bidder.

I can see him going for around 10/12 million near the end of the window to be honest, the tricky thing is how do the club deal with him once he's back from international duty.

Is he to train with the first team or left on his own to train whilst we find a new club, its clear that we have no intentions of using him this season so would seem bizarre to give him pre season game time.

This could have been a good deal if its correct

https://www.dailystar.co.uk/sport/football/787729/West-Ham-Salomon-Rondon-bid-transfer-news-latest

I would have been happy with that deal to be honest. Would cover us with another striker and also sort out right back problem out whilst also giving us some money to invest in to one or two more players.

To think we could have got Bryam, Hugill, paid 4million for Oxford and still have 6million left would have been a good bit of business.

From our game against Boro last season I am not overly struck on Hugill...but then you have to factor in who his manager was.

EFL hub reporting West Ham have offered £10m, Byram and Hugil for Rondon.

Very impressed with Hugil against us for Boro last year. Perfect for Bilic' system plus he would know their abilities and character.

Not sure he would know anything about Hugill as he only went West Ham last year. Looking at his career he doesn't seem to score that many goals, 12 in 44 was his best return in the 16/17 season. Managed 6 goals last year for Boro but he was in a Tony Pulis team so I wont look into that too much.

We need at least 2 strikers coming in (3 if Jay Rod leaves) so on that basis I wouldn't mind him coming in, but wouldn't be too confident if he was our first choice striker.
