Hammers target Rondon holding out for Newcastle move

Hammers target Rondon holding out for Newcastle move West Ham United target Salomon Rondon is reportedly holding out for a return to Newcastle United this summer, according to The Chronicle. The attacker is attracting interest from several Premier League clubs, but he is said to be willing to delay his final decision to give the Magpies a chance to make a move for him. Venezuela international Rondon enjoyed a great season on loan at Newcastle, scoring 11 times and assisting seven goals from his 32 top-flight games.

Salomón Rondón sought expert counsel from a South American farmer before committing himself to leaving West Bromwich Albion for a season on loan at Newcastle United. Although a creator as much as a finisher, Rondón hopes the goals will flow again under Benítez.

Strikers Leicester could look to sign this summer.
Leicester City fans will be looking forward to next season with Brendan Rodgers at the helm. The Northern Irishman took over from Claude Puel in February and brought the joy back to football at the King Power with some impressive performances during the back end of the season.

Rodgers will now also be able to use the next couple of months to shape his squad in the transfer window, with many of players currently at the club signed by Puel.
