Bundesliga’s Top 5 Japanese goals in 2018/19

West Brom have confirmed the club-record £12 million signing of striker Salomon Rondon on a four-year deal from Zenit St Petersburg.

The 25-year-old striker had been linked with a host of clubs but arrived at the Baggies' training ground last week to discuss terms and undergo a medical.

The club and player have since been waiting on international clearance to confirm the move, and Rondon has now become West Brom's fifth signing during the current transfer window.

Talking to Albion's website upon signing his deal, Rondon said: "I am very happy to be here. This is a new opportunity in my career. I can’t wait to be with the other players and to play.

"The club showed a lot of interest in me, that’s what is important for a player, what you take into account, and there are expectations of me."

Manager Tony Pulis added: "He’s got a fantastic goalscoring record in some of the top leagues in Europe and for his country. He’s 25 years of age and still to fulfil his full potential.

"We hope he hits the ground running of course but understand it might take him time to settle. I’m sure our fans will help him and get behind him."
