Also, at 25, he has youth on his side and compared with British, or more specifically English options, he offered value for money for his pedigree and performance to date and is a coup for West Bromwich Albion to sign.

If, as expected, Saido Berahino leaves the club during this transfer window, the club have made a bold acquisition in Rondon to mitigate his predicted move away.

He was ineligible against Manchester City, but international clearance has been granted, so he is vying for a place in Saturday’s squad for the game against Watford. Rondon is a talent and we will see soon whether he can replicate his goalscoring form in the Premier League.
