Newcastle are in talks with West Brom to sign striker Salomon Rondon, according to Sky sources.

Reports say that the Venezuela international has a £16.5m release clause in his contract and Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez sees him as a replacement for Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Newcastle have stepped up their interest in Rondon following the Serb's proposed transfer to Fulham, which is close to completion, with Mitrovic now in London for a medical.
