WEST BROMWICH, England (AP) - Venezuela striker Salomon Rondon has left Zenit St. Petersburg to join West Bromwich Albion for what the Premier League side says is a club-record fee in the region of 12 million pounds ($18.65 million).

West Brom says Monday that the 25-year-old Rondon has signed a four-year deal after receiving international clearance. His first match could be against Watford on Saturday.

West Brom manager Tony Pulis says “we feel with age on his side and the prices English clubs are asking for their players, it’s a deal worth doing.” 

Since 2010, Rondon has played for Malaga, Rubin Kazan and, most recently, Zenit.

Rondon is the second striker to join West Brom this transfer window, after Rickie Lambert.
