Rondon reunites with Benitez

Salomon Rondon has joined Chinese side Dalian Yifang from Championship club West Brom. 

Rondon has now linked up with his former boss Rafael Benitez, who was appointed as the head coach of Yifang earlier this month. The duo worked together at Newcastle United last season, with the striker netting 11 goals during his loan spell as Benitez led the St James’ Park club to Premier League safety for a second successive season. 

The 29-year-old joins Dalian Yifang less than three weeks after Benitez made the move to the Chinese Super League. 

The Venezuelan, who had a £16.5m release clause in his West Brom contract, passed a medical with Dalian Yifang on Thursday, Sky Sports News understands.
