Rondon to Newcastle
Salomon Rondon joined Newcastle United this summer on a season-long loan from West Brom.
Rondon made his Newcastle debut in their first game of the season, coming off the bench for 31 minutes.
The forward was then an unused sub as Newcastle drew with Cardiff 0-0.
Rondon then started back-to-back games for Newcastle as they lost 2-1 to both Chelsea and Manchester City.
The 29-year-old was once again an unused sub vs Arsenal and then played 45 minutes as Newcastle drew with Crystal Palace.
Rondon’s potential injury?
While Rondon has not set the world on fire for Newcastle this season, he is still an important member of the squad.
But reports are today emerging that Rondon may be injured.
ESPN’s former Newcastle correspondent Marc Duffy has today tweeted that Newcastle forward Salomon Rondon is on his flight to Amsterdam.
Duffy also speculated that Rondon may be heading to Amsterdam for injury treatment.
Saloman Rondon is on my flight to Amsterdam this afternoon. Off somewhere for injury treatment or just heading to the Dam for a space cake and a wander down the red light district? #NUFC

This could well be possible as it is highly unlikely that Rondon is heading to Amsterdam for a quick holiday in the middle of the season.
Newcastle vs Leicester City
Why Rondon is in Amsterdam is not 100% known but the Magpies will be hoping to have him back in time for their clash with Leicester this weekend.
Newcastle head into the game with just two points from their first six league games this season.
This puts Newcastle in the bottom three on the same points as Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town.
Leicester, on the other hand, currently sit 9th in the table.
They have won three this season vs Huddersfield, Southampton and Wolves.
Their three losses came against Manchester United, Liverpool and Bournemouth
