For those fans who are down on Newcastle United right now – because of what happened this year, cheer up – at least our new signing has called the Newcastle United club magnificent – and that’s got to be a good start to his Newcastle career. 😀
Ayoze Perez – I’m very pleased to play for this magnificent club.
Newcastle United have just confirmed the signing of 20 year-old Tenerife right winger Ayoze Perez on a long-term contract, and somehow signing a good player is like winning a game – it tends to lift the spirits.
Perez had an excellent season last term playing for Tenerife in the Spanish second division, and in 34 games he scored 16 goals and had 7 assists.
This is what he has said on nufcTV today:
“I’m very happy to be here to start this new adventure.” “I’m very eager for it to begin and I’m very pleased to play for this magnificent club.””Any football player would be interested in playing for such a Club and I will earn my position to get in the first team.”
Ayoze also said he knows quite a lot about Newcastle and their history and some of the players, such as the great Alan Shearer, and he has watched a lot of Premier League games – especially those involving Newcastle United.
Perez will start in the Development squad, but it is now up to him to force himself into the Newcastle first team squad, and get as many first team games as he can next season for Newcastle United.
Ayoze has yet to pick a Newcastle number, and he will wear Ayoze on the back of his shirt, and the lad certainly seems to have the right attitude, and those comments will soon have the Newcastle fans right behind him.
There are reports that a number of top clubs were after him, including Arsenal and Real Madrid – but he chose Newcastle United – maybe becasue hes got a better chance to get games on Tyneside.
We wish him every success on Tyneside, and we would love for him to be a huge success at Newcastle.
Ayoze already has over 9,000 followers on his Twitter account – you may want to follow him here.
Maybe you can also welcome him to Newcastle United. 😀

Howay The Lads!!
