Surely Berahino on his way then. Lambert didn't come here to sit on the bench and this guy will surely be a starter.
I would think Ideye has more chance of going. I can see lambert and berahino working alongside this guy with Berahino playing slightly behind the front line.

Rondon is very much in the target man role - I don't see it as being the end of Berahino because of this potential signing.

I'd be happy with that (as long as he's not being signed to replace Saido)!
We've gone on holiday by mistake!

So he's like Lambert, rather than Berahino/Ideye?

Strange one this for me though delighted were upping our game.

Why spend 15m on a unproven premier league striker when a proven one is available in Austin for the same price.

The way TP was speaking the other night on Five Live - he was saying he wants to keep Saido for the couple of years and wanted more players in all positions.

if we kept Berahino and signed this guy then we can be very excited about the upcoming season!

I hope this spells the end for Anichebe/Ideye as opposed to Saido.

Think out the 4 we currently have it will Ideye who leaves, hasnt really started in pre season (even though hes been scoring) and is probably on a decent enough wage whilst still having something about him to be able to move on for some fee.

I'd say he'd be a replacement for Anichebe. Competition for Lambert.

Have a bad feeling that Berahino has been sold, otherwise I don't see us spending that much on a striker at the same position.

Cynical me thinks thats exactly why he's being signed.

You might be right with Lambert signing and this guy I would expect Anicebe to be gone, Ideye could possibly be backup for Saido still.

Who said Austin wants/wanted to come to us? I heard he wanted to stay in London

on paper, Rondon is a significantly better player. It's a risk with him never playing here, but if it comes off he's MUCH better by the looks of it.

I'd say so. Championship imo - Boro/Derby/Forest. Someone of that ilk

He was second top scorer behind Hulk in the Russian premier league last season, having scored 2 less but also played 700 minutes less.

as he showed against Birmingham, he could do quite well in that league.

Is it a surprise? Most of our business has been done that way.

I really try to not let myself get excited by rumours because it's WBA and it's normally not true, but this is such an exciting prospect if true.
