Ayoze Pérez may be set for Tyneside departure

Newcastle have been dealt a potential blow with the news that Spanish striker Ayoze Pérez is thinking about leaving the club in the summer.

The 25-year’s goals have been instrumental in recent weeks in helping to guarantee Newcastle’s Premier League survival. It was his flicked header that gave them a valuable win away at Leicester, whilst his hat-trick against Southampton on Saturday, the first of his career, has made them mathematically safe for another season.

A £1.5 million capture from Tenerife in 2014, Pérez has now become Newcastle’s top scorer for the season, and has moved into the list of the club’s top ten goal scorers in the Premier League era.

However, that sort of form has attracted the attention of club’s back in his homeland, with some of the biggest clubs In La Liga tracking him, and he has made it clear his not averse to listen to offers saying: “In the summer, there are going to be options. That means I have done something well. I’ll be up for hearing what is coming, but it doesn’t mean I am going to leave 100 per cent at the end of the season”.
