West Brom transfer news: Baggies did reject Chinese big money offer for Salomon Rondon

Sport | Published:

Tony Pulis has confirmed Albion have rejected a big money bid from a Chinese club for top scorer Salomon Rondon.

The offer, from Chinese Super League club Tianjin Quanjin, is thought to have been in the region of £32million.

But speaking after the Baggies drew 1-1 at Middlesbrough on Tuesday night, Pulis revealed the bid had been knocked back.

"The Chinese club have made contact, the offer has gone in but I don't think the club are keen to do anything on that," he said.

"Salomon stays with us and thank god for that."

Rondon has netted 17 goals since joining from Zenit St Petersburg for a then club record fee of £12million in the summer of 2015.

The Venezuela international is the latest Premier League star to be the targeted by a Super League club. It remains to be seen if Tianjin will now return with a bigger offer as, though the European transfer window has now closed, the Chinese window remains open until February 28.
