Cape Town - West Bromwich Albion will sell Venezuelan striker Salomon Rondon, the club confirmed. 

Last week, reports suggested that Wolverhampton Wanderers were in the hunt to sign Rondon, who spent last season on loan at Newcastle United.

West Brom failed to get promoted to the Premier League last season under Darren Moore and Jimmy Shan, while Newcastle has parted company with Rafael Benitez meaning Rondon is unlikely to return to St James’ Park.

Now, Wolves could steal a march on their rivals in their bid to boost their strike force, with Raul Jimenez the only recognised striker in the squad.

And, West Brom technical director Luke Dowling says Rondon will leave this summer, as the player has only one year left on his deal.

"We’re quite happy to say that we will sell Salomon," said Dowling.

"We don’t want a player that’s had a season like that staying around with us and walking away on a Bosman.

"Salomon has had the taste of Newcastle.

"He went back to a Premier League club and if he plays in England that’s where he wants to be."
