Saloman Rondon has departed The Hawthorns after signing for Chinese club Dalian Yifang for an undisclosed fee. 

It's believe the Chinese outfit have met the £16.5m release clause in Rondon's contract bringing an end to his Albion career. 

Rondon will join up again with Rafa Benitez at Dalian Yifang, who managed the Venezuelan last season when he was on loan at Newcastle United. 

He joined Albion for around £12m in 2015 when he joined from Zenit. In total, he made 120 apperances for The Throstles, scoring 28 times.
