  • Newcastle statement

Having avoided relegation in their first season back in the Premier League last time out, Rafa Benitez has shared his concerns regarding the club's lack of transfer activity. "I am really looking forward to playing in front of the fans".

He will now link up with Rafael Benitez's Newcastle, with Gayle heading to the Hawthorns on loan for the campaign in return.

Dwight Gayle is a proven goalscorer in the Championship - he bagged 23 goals during Newcastle's promotion winning 16/17 season, but has struggled to replicate that form in the Premier League.

"I have a lot of confidence in this group of players but they (the club) know we have to do something if we want to improve the competition between players", Benitez said after yesterday's 1-0 pre-season home defeat to Augsburg. The players have no problem with the media, but it's a way of letting people know they're unhappy.

"The clubs were talking for a long time and now I'm focused on the season to help my team mates to get the points to do well this season".

Newcastle statement Mike Ashley has been at loggerheads with fans for a decade

Newcastle have been chasing Rondon all summer but only wanted to take the striker on loan.

Former Sunderland and Newcastle United manager Sam Allardyce has delivered his verdict on Rafa Benitez's transfer stand-off with owner Mike Ashley.

"As the first Japanese Newcastle United player, I am honoured to be a player for such a big club".

"The manager attracted me", Gayle told West Brom's official website.

Rondon was a standout performer for the Baggies but could not prevent Darren Moore's side from dropping down to the Championship.
