Recent reports have suggested that West Bromwich Albion striker Salomon Rondon will be reunited with former manager Rafael Benitez in the Chinese Super League this summer after agreeing a move to Dalian Yifang. The fee for the transfer is undisclosed but is supposedly more than what any English club had been prepared to pay.

Benitez and Rondon were together at Newcastle last season, although the Venezuelan was on loan at the Toon as part of a swap deal for Dwight Gayle. The 29-year-old scored 11 goals and assisted seven as Newcastle finished 13th in the Premier League last season.

Turmoil at St James Park involving owner Mike Ashley and Benitez saw the Spaniard leave the club at the end of his contract, joining Dalian Yifang earlier this summer.

The undisclosed fee for the transfer has angered many West Brom fans as the club have sold a lot of players in the last two seasons and not signed any replacements. Some Baggies fans believe the owner is pocketing some of the money for himself while providing the club with as little as possible.

Here is the best of the reaction.
