Hammers could take advantage of relegation clause

BBC radio reporter claims that West Brom’s striker Salomon Rondon has a release clause of £8m which will be activated should the Baggies go down. Rondon joined the Midlands outfit from Zenit St Petersburg for a then club record fee of £12million in the summer of 2015.

In the winter of 2017, an offer from Chinese Super League club Tianjin Quanjin thought to have been in the region of £32million was rejected by West Brom. At the time then Baggies manager Tony Pulis revealed: “The Chinese club have made contact, the offer has gone in but I don’t think the club are keen to do anything on that, Salomon stays with us and thank god for that.”

Rondon has scored 23 goals from 102 appearances in the Premier League with 6 goals from 31 appearances this season, last season he scored 8 from 38 appearances and his debut season it was 9 from 34 League appearances.

West Ham is said to be one of a number of clubs interested in the striker at the right price.

  1. So rather than a 20 goal a season striker we’re looking at a striker who takes nearly three seasons to get twenty goals… Next level… 🤬

  2. Agreed. 1 in FIVE ratio!!! Probably just paper talk. At least, I really hope it is………

  3. Solomon Rondon??? Thanks but no thanks…
