It seems West Brom’s failure to agree personal terms with Dwight Gayle could stop Salomon Rondon’s move to the club from going ahead.

Both Sky Sports News and the Chronicle believe the Baggies are not able to match our no.9’s salary while Sky also say that the Championship side are refusing to accept a purchase clause in the season-long loan deal.

It means Rondon’s switch is now in serious doubt. Fans on Twitter reacted to the news with many frustrated at the turn of events:

It’s fair to say that most were not surprised by the lack of progress:

The Chronicle believe that the club will now have to pay the £16.5m release clause to seal a deal for the South American striker. Considering we reportedly received an initial £22m from Fulham for Aleksandar Mitrovic, the money really shouldn’t be a problem.

However, with this club, things are not ever that straightforward. Hopefully, Rafa can force the club to put up some money for the Venezuelan before the transfer window closes.
