This has not been an easy summer for West Brom as Slaven Bilic tries to negotiate a restricted transfer window.
Spending restrictions and reduced parachute payments have left the Baggies needing to shed some of the bigger earners from their first-team and that is what has happened with little coming the other way.
Rafa Benitez is keen to take Salomon Rondon to China with him, and Dalian Yifang willing to pay #wba more than any English clubs (who haven't got near £16.5m release clause so far). Would be best deal for Albion, but unclear if Rondon is willing to go https://t.co/7YfbYd964X

Another big name in the spotlight, who was thought to be a certain departure at the end of his loan with Newcastle last season, is Salomon Rondon.
However, according to a report from the Express and Star, the Venezuelan is unsure over whether to take up an offer from Rafa Benitez’s new side, Dalian Yifang.
And it sparked a debate among the fans as to where they think he will end up next season…
He will jump at it.. Money will be way better.. He wanted it last time

The moment we came out and said we would be looking at selling Rondon, it automatically knocked down a few million. Teams know we want to sell so they can afford to wait and we’d have to accept. We won’t get anywhere near £16.5m

I reckon he will stay personally.

Think this will drag on till the deadline, leaving us with little chance of spending the money this window.

It worries me the only transfer news we have is players leaving
