Newcastle United star one of eight Sky Sports nominations for Premier League signing of the season
Sky Sports are asking the question: ‘Who has been the Premier League signing of the season?’
They have put up eight nominations for the title of best signing.
The eight nominations range from a £67m signing, to a free transfer and loan signings.
Newcastle United’s Salomon Rondon is one of the eight players picked out.
Here is the Sky Sports write up on him, then the list of all eight candidates and details of how to vote for your Premier League signing of the season.
Only at Newcastle United under Mike Ashley, could we be looking at a scenario where the owner will refuse to allow Rondon to be bought this summer, purely because of his age, instead of the first consideration being his worth to the team.
Salomon Rondon (Newcastle – on loan from West Brom)
“It seems as though every time I’ve covered Newcastle this season, Salomon Rondon has been a key component in a positive result for Rafa Benitez’s men.
“The 29-year-old has fired 10 goals and racked up five assists in what is turning into a comfortable season without relegation fear for the Toon.
“He leads the line with great authority, in a style that brings the best out of his team-mates in forward areas, plus, he’s added more goals to his game this season.
“Fans will be hoping his loan deal will become permanent over the summer.”
