Newcastle United Reopen Talks For West Brom Hitman


"I was talking with Lee Charnley (managing director) before the game and I'll maybe see him after the game", Benitez said.

Newcastle have been interested in Rondon all summer, but have previously expressed a desire to take the Venezuelan on loan.

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez said the club had followed Muto for some time, praising his energy and work rate. The fans have to be concerned, we are concerned.

Mike Ashley's continued refusal to meaningfully back Newcastle United has once again led to mass frustration amongst the Newcastle United fanbase, but Ashley has found an unlikely ally in BeIN Sports presenter Richard Keys.

"I always have confidence and belief we'll do what we need to do".

He made just one league appearance for PSG last season, but looks likely to be more involved this term as Tuchel places his faith in youth. The former Liverpool manager had initially thought he would have around £45mn to spend but has since been instructed he would have to operate under a sell-to-buy policy.

Muto, 26, is Newcastle's fourth permanent signing of the close season following goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, midfielder Ki Sung-yueng and defender Fabian Schar. Meanwhile a £9.5mn deal for Mainz's Japan forward Yoshinori Muto was formalised yesterday.

"I'm not saying we're not working, but the point is we were ready to go and we knew what we wanted to do".

Newcastle are also looking to offload Gayle and the 27-year-old is still part of the conversation as an option to join West Brom in a deal for Rondon. "But I can't say too much".
