Terrible deal if as reported we only getting 2 million. It makes no sense at all
2million loan fee plus Gayle on loan I’d say is a decent deal, if rondon performs well up there which I think he will he’ll be worth more to us.

The only bit I am confused by is what happens at the end of the year, Rondon just walks away on a freebie?

If he does well at Newcastle I imagine he would sign there and he would have only cost them 2million.

That being said, I said some stats on him earlier and I think hes workrate actually blinds how poor he is in front of goal.

Here are his premier league stats:

Shots 244   

Shots on target 76   

Shooting accuracy % 31%   

Big chances missed 24

it was either in Brummie Mail or E&S earlier today that we have  a 1 year option on the deal with Rondon so he will still have a value to us at the end of the loan period.

We have a one year option at the end of the season to exercise on Rondon.

At the bottom,

Contract status

"When Rondon signed his four-year deal at Albion in 2015, the club had a further year’s option in their favour, BirminghamLive understands.

That means the Baggies would still be able to cash in on Rondon, especially if he thrives at James’ Park, rather than run the risk of him leaving as a free agent."

Surely this would have to be the case otherwise either we are incredibly stupid or Newcastle master negotiators. Without a contract Rondon joins them for free and Gayle goes back! We get £2m for a player valued at £16.5m.

We desperately need someone who can put the ball in the back of the net at this level. Gayle is proven to do that. A good move.

There's nothing yet from our end to say the deal's been completed.

Gayle replacing HRK will be an immediate improvement. General consensus appears to be feed him and he will score at this level which is exactly what was missing against Bolton (along with a commanding CB).

Potentially as good as Kevin Phillips was for us in the Championship - as his Championship record shows, he gets goals.
Having said that, if our setup is anything like it was on Saturday then he would be very isolated with few chances, which would put a lot of pressure on him.

As the squad stands not over impressed with this signing he needs the chances made for him and we are lacking in that department both in midfield and as support for him upfront best hope we have a busy week.

Every time we've been promoted from the Champ, we've had a player who scores 15+ goals as well as a midfield who can add a few too . Gayle has a pedigree in the Champ. No transfer is guaranteed but if he got 15+ goals he'd have been a success.

'Better than HRK' is not really a yardstick to judge anyone is it! We also need two more strikers as I think JRod will go aswell as Rondon.....

Definitely need more options up front, as even with Gayle coming in that leaves us with 3 'first team' players and if we're playing two up top that's not enough for a 46+ game season - especially if one has a dip in form, injury or suspension
I think if we get £20m for JRod we'll spend on a couple of players possibly that we've already been linked with

I notice he is second favourite for top championship goalscorer behind..................J-Rod

Gayle is 16/1 at the moment if you fancy it.

He has already signed but unlikely to play due to match fitness

Season-long "swap-loan" now confirmed on the official site:

Gayle arrives

He's making the right noises, so it's fair enough to believe him on that basis, as long as his performances back it up. The issue now is what's the right formation for him and who/how will he be given the service he needs. On a Newcastle blog (http://www.nufcblog.co.uk/) the writer has said: "I’m happy with this deal in the circumstances, with Rondon and upgrade on Gayle and a player far better suited to Rafa’s system in the lone striker role". The question, therefore, is do we continue to persist with 2 strikers or, if we switch to 1, can Gayle be effective in such a formation? I guess we need to have a good look at how Newcastle played when he scored 23 goals in 2016-17 and how those goals were created.
