Rafa Benitez responds to transfer window speculation about another loan for Salomon Rondon

He ain't coming back in my view

We won't sanction any further loan as it will take him to the end of his contract.

I hope he gets a hat trick tonight and they cough up the right amount of money for him at the end of the season

How much do you think we could get for him ? Considering he is in the last year of his contract and in his 30’s. If we wanted 16 for him last summer then I’d have thought it will be less then that.

I though his contract covered this season and we have an option of a further 12 months and this was agreed before we allowed his loan to Newcastle, but I could be mistaken and normally am  :D

Straight swap for Gayle seems reasonable.

Can't see Newcastle wanting to pay £15M for Rondon or selling Gayle for £10M, more likely the other way round.
;D Gayle is one of us . In the after match interview they asked him if he was going to give JRod a hard time that he had overtaken him in the top scorer department...his response "I will remind him at least 10 times on the way home in the coach"......great lad ;)

Just out of interest, did anyone watch last night's game and if so how did Rondon do please?

Didn't see all of it but a fair chunk. His general play was decent, holding it up, linking up etc. No goal though. Had 1 chance where I thought he should have buried it but no joy.

Last night proved what we know only too well: Works hard, hold ball up well but cannot finish. Leave him where he is and get Gayle deal sorted!

Sorry, but no. Gayle always struggles for goals when he plays in the Premier League, he's essentially a modern Robert Earnshaw. He doesn't contribute enough to the team overall, and at that level you can't carry players, which is why he often gets used as an impact sub. Plus his injury record isn't great, and he's a player who relies on pace and movement coming into the period of his career where he is going to start losing those attributes.

If we stay down I'd make it permanent, if we go up I'd look to get somebody else.

Love Rondon and Gayle for different reasons, but in reality there is a reason why one is in the Premier League and one isn't.

IF we get back up i'd like us to have Rondon, J-ROd and Gayle as it gives a lot of options all different types of striker but can't see it myself.

FWIW, NUFC fans are in love with Rondon and consider signing him permanently a top priority.

'Better than Mitrovic' What Newcastle United fans really think of Salomon Rondon

I ain't so sure, I think they are on a par personally

Aside from the delusion that they're a big club they're knowledgeable fans, they certainly know a number 9 when they see one.

Just do not accept that Gayle can’t score goals in the premier league. Goals are the same size last time I looked. Use him correctly and he will get goals.

defenders are much MUCH better though. Positioning isn’t enough and he’s not strong, fast or skilful enough to consistently beat PL standard defenders.

Rondon is worth more than Gayle, not even worth discussion.

NEWCASTLE have agreed a £51m deal to sign Brazilian striker Joelinton from Hoffenheim, according to reports.

If that happens, will Sol be on his way back to us I hope and wonder?

The source for this one is not the most reliable though!

Sol won’t be with us next year, I suspect even if we go up. Everton very keen on him, as are Cardiff (if they stay up).
