Salomon Rondon has revealed that he was open to joining Newcastle United this summer.
Speaking to todofichajes.com , he said: “I would have continued in Newcastle if they had given me the opportunity, but I couldn’t. Now I am very happy in China. The league is quite different and the language is totally different, but it is a matter of adapting.”
The 30-year-old Venezuelan was on loan at the club last season and he managed to impress a lot. He scored 11 goals for the Magpies and helped them beat the drop.
