Has that release clause not expired though? I was under the impression it had a limited time to be exercised.
Not as far as im aware, only thing that may diminish it is the fact he is out of contract at the end of next season so if no-one pays it now then his value falls rapidly as his contract whittles down

It did and it is reinstated every close season. If we got promoted it would have gone up to 20m

If Newcastle wont, there will be clubs that will, Rondon at 16.5m is a bargain!

Rondon has made it very clear that he wants to stay at Newcastle. You're right though, 16.5m is an absolute steal.

There were no takers for him last year at that price. Granted he's had a better season but he's another year older and has only a year left on his contract. Can't see Ashley paying out for him unless we can cut a deal involving Gayle. However I do think a lower Prem club will take a punt on Gayle.

Or maybe Fulham, they've been linked for a while and he is a Londoner so the appeal of going back down there might swing it.

I think he might stay, he’s built up a good relationship with jay rod and it is obviously he has really enjoyed his time here. At the ground last night (even if some of our actual players weren’t ) and celebrated like mad when daws scored. Classy twitter post as well 
It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner.

I bet HRK was on his holidays telling all and sundry about his goal in the European championships.

If he wasn't fined 2 weeks wages for that red it says it all about our hierarchy.

HRK was driving down the expressway into Bham at 6:30 last night.

Tin hat time, but DG is turning 30 this year so spending in effect £15m on him is not viable imo long term and I have to hope we can get better value elsewhere on someone younger who has been scouted by LD and IP.

Rumours suggest others are interested in SR so hopefully someone like West ham, whose manager MP managed him at Malaga will fancy him.

I hope Rafa shafts Mike Ashley and leaves for Celtic as has been rumoured.

Gayle is currently 28 years old

We have to move heaven and earth to sign Gayle, and get in another powerful striker to support him. J-Rod is a useful link player but doesn't do much from open play and HRK is a squad player. Hopefully Rondon's clause is taken and that £16m can fund Gayle and a bit more.

Aside from how good he was for us this season, it was great to see him watching the game last night and clearing caring.

Keep Rondon (he’s more use to us than the 16m)
Sign Gayle 10m
Sign Bannan 3m
Resign Tosin on loan
Holgate on Loan
Tuenzabe on loan
Nick Powell on free

                           Johnstone
             Dawson.   Barkley.    Tosin/tuenzabe

Holgate.    Field.   Bannan. Livermore. Gibbs

                      Rondon.  Gayle

We walk the league ?

not sure selling those 3 guys nets you that much (average 11m per sale), and in that case (if I'm right) we wouldn't have the fund to buy Gayle outright. On the other hand, not selling Rondon and missing out on 15-20 million to let him go for free at the end of the season seems senseless. The best hope here is there's a bidding war between Newcastle/Everton/WHU that allows us to receive more than just the release clause of 16.5m (or in the case of a deal with NUFC, Gayle + some millions).

HRK pulled up to the hawthorns in the passenger seat of Livermores fancy Lamborghini at 6:30 last night  ;D

Best case scenario is sell to Everton and get holgate on perm and niasse on loan plus £10-12m. They do tend to overpay (sigurdsson & tosin).

Be surprised if we see Gayle here next season, I would imagine that a lower Premier League team would take a punt in him, the 3 promoted teams should definitely be interested.

Somebody else was driving his car then - 7HRK went down the expressway and it certainly looked like him. My son took a photo.

Blimey. That's a downer. I'm all for honesty, but give us a bit of hope and time to enjoy the amazing atmosphere last week, before you kill it.

He's off to Fulham by the sound of it or Sheff Utd.

No swap deal means Rondon will end up at Wolves..?

I don't know why anyone is disappointed the facts of Championship life preclude us from signing players earning £55k a week. I am more concerned they would have done the deal in the Premier League which means we haven't got a proper handle on this recruitment malarkey. Although that is a bit of a moot point and easy for Dowling to say as a bit of a sop to those fans who are disappointed.

Basically like I’ve been saying all year, we are absolutely skint.


Not paying those sort of wages does not mean the club is absolutely skint.
