An Update On Salomon Rondon – When Will He Be Fit?


Solomon Rondon has played only three times in the league for Newcastle so far this season.

He arrived at Newcastle in the final week of the transfer window after his loan move had been held up while West Brom tried to get Dwight Gayle on loan as part of the total deal.

They were successful in getting Gayle on loan, and the Newcastle striker has so far scored 8 goals in just 11 Championship appearances for the Baggies who are in second place in the Championship.

Newcastle are currently in second bottom place of the Premier League.

We are hoping that Rondon can return for our next game at home to Brighton & Hove Albion a week on Saturday – 20th October.

The Venezuelan striker has a thigh injury which he picked up at Crystal Palace last month.

Here is a tweet Salomon sent out showing him working in the gym at Newcastle trying to get fit for the Brighton game.

We are hoping the 29-year-old can return to the side and it’s unusual for him to be injured.

But he arrived in poor physical shape at Newcastle after he had missed preseason with West Brom since they knew he was “about” to go on loan to Newcastle.

But as usual with Newcastle in the transfer window, they took their time in making the loan move final.

Rafa had wanted to keep Dwight at the club, but it’s turning out to be a great deal for West Brom with Gayle again scoring those goals in the Championship.

Salomon is a good player, and we look forward to seeing him in Newcastle colors soon and scoring some goals for us.

Rafa had said he would be out only a couple of weeks so he should be fit for the Brighton game.

W hope he’s fit for the Brighton game.

Newcastle need to start picking up some wins in our next few games.

What do you think?

    Lol Jib, nah, just making a point, but it was slightly nit-picky wasn’t it?

    Apologies, no offence meant.

    I do think Dubs is a leader – he shows it on the pitch – and I’m sure he’s happy to take the lads under his wing in that regard.

    Nathan Harker is my neighbours’ nephew, from a Geordie family despite being born and raised down South.

    I’ll see if I can get any inside info on him and share anything of interest.

    Jib,
    What a tw@t of a reply. You blatantly did give him credit and RobLeenio was pointing out why he didn’t think it was to do with him. It’s called debate. You’re just miffed because the continuous bollox you spout trying to sound like you know what you’re talking about as yet again been exposed.

    This sounds a bit like Leicester’s lame duck that we had last season on loan. Get him fit and healthy ready to go back and what do we get ? Naf all !
    Why oh why don’t we stop piss farting about get a decent goal scorer ? There are plenty out there. Bloody hell we even have some good ones coming through the ranks. Give them a chance ! not just a shot at warming the bench either.
    Remember that young lad that Everton took a chance on a few years ago ? what was his name a gain ? I’m sure it sounded like Looney ! He never looked back after that.
    Get real ! Fat Lad isn’t gonna spend any big money so why not try something else !
