West Brom remain in contention to win promotion back to the Premier League at the first time of asking, although it may have to be via the play-offs.
Jimmy Shan’s side currently sit in fourth place, but six points behind second-placed Leeds United with just seven matches left to play.
Whatever happens this season, however, there will have been some very strong individual displays with Ahmed Hegazy, Dwight Gayle, Mason Holgate and Rekeem Harper all impressing massively.
Yet, ahead of the summer transfer window, it is a player currently out on loan who has attracted the most attention.
Salomon Rondon was sent out on loan to Newcastle United as part of the deal that saw Gayle move to the Hawthorns, scoring ten goals in the process.
His future remains up in the air with a few clubs signalling an interest in signing him, including the Magpies.
Here, then, are THREE potential paths he could go down this season…
Return to West Brom
This looks like the most ill-advised move.
Whilst Rondon would get plenty of game time back at the Hawthorns, there is plenty of uncertainty surrounding them at the moment and whoever comes in to manage them may not take a shining to him.
The Venezuelan would surely be better off opting for a club with more security.
Push for Newcastle stay
Rondon has slowly become a big hit in the North East.
Since the turn of the year, he has been one of the most important members of the squad in terms of steering Rafa Benitez’s side away from the drop.
This must be the most appealing option.
Opt for West Ham
His form has not passed other potential suitors by either.
West Ham United are one side who are apparently pondering a move for the 29-year-old this summer, according to the Northern Echo, and it could prove a tempting move.
Newcastle are a side with plenty of off-field dramas and whilst West Ham are not flawless in that department, they are markedly better.
