Insistent Pardew The Reason Magpies Got Perez


The agent of 20 year-old winger Ayoze Perez has made some very interesting comments about why his client joined Newcastle United, when some other bigger clubs – like Real Madrid, Roma and Porto for instance, were interested in signing the player.

Olaf Bonales – Ayoze Perez’ agent

Olaf Bonales is Perez’ agent has said this about the youngster’s move to Newcastle:

“We have chosen the best option. A four-year contract in a British team, which will allow Ayoze to develop his game.¨ “It is a powerful club financially and in terms of structure. They are laying down the foundations of a new project.”

“Tenerife have done good business, rejecting offers from clubs like Real Madrid, Valencia, Roma and Porto among others, and making €2M (£1.6M) for a player who has six months left on his contract.¨

“There was a verbal agreement with Porto but it was the insistence of Alan Pardew that was so great, and we managed to sit down with the British club to close the deal.”

It’s not too surprising that Alan Pardew is getting involved with the transfers this summer, because he must get some good players through the door this summer – and the sooner Newcastle do that – the better it will be.

Perez was certainly very excited when the signing was announced last week, and he had some very good things to say about what he called a magnificent club – Newcastle United.

We’ re very hopeful that this youngster can have a good first season on Tyneside, and make an immediate breakthrough to the first team squad, and (even) play a  number of games for the first team.

Even though Newcastle fans are down in the dumps at the moment because of our terrible form and results this year, we shouldn’t forget the club still has an excellent name on the continent – we just need to sign five or six top players in the summer.

That’s what’s needed to get us back on track and challenging again for a top six position.

It’s certainly possible.

Comments welcome.

    Good signing Colback like .

    Similar to Anita but is stronger and better suited to the PL .

    We just have to hope fat Ash opens his wallet and we bring in some real quality .

    @Usmag lmfao there you go again. What is with you and this Homegrown crap. ”I was Born in Ashington. Please don’t talk to me like I am some sort of closet fan”

    It does not matter where you are from ever fan are equals.

    I just disagree with the fact that you think Jack Colback will be a world beater when he is mediocre. And that you think we should be signing players like Jack Coleback and not Cabella.

    Let’s take a vote and see. What do you guys think is best for the club and will take it forward signing Jack Coleback for free (He is a geordie) Or getting the funds out and paying around £10m for someone like Cabella (From France)

    BPC Exactly my point.

    Well, I have to say I’m relieved now that wor summer signings are complete. I was worried Mike would have to spend some money for a minute there! I see Stoke has signed Sidwell. He was probably too expensive for our taste. Perez will soon find out what it’s like to play for us. He’ll spend most of his time injured like most of our young signings (Vuckic, and Gosling for example) and then disappear into the lower leagues. Or he could be another Xisco. Think of that lads! We are truly screwed.

    Graeme,
    I fear you could be right although we’ll see a loan striker come in at some stage, probably in late August after Santons gone and freed up some wages, they definitely won’t bring in any defenders even if Mbwia does go on the theory that the seoson we finished fifth we only had three CB’s and we didn’t need four last season, while Obertan and Marv are here he won’t pay for anymore wingers, so I really can only see Cabella coming in if they agree to our demands, Mikey isn’t that bothered about signing him therefore will not budge in his efforts.

    @Scout it’s not good news it’s just news.

    It’s like sidwell to stoke there just like aye he will do for a squad player and go on about there day nothing to really get excited about.

    We bloody just want some real quality in our team is that to much to ask for?

    SCout,
    We have waited nearly eighteen months for a signing and when we do it’s a young kid for the development squad with the same rep as a certain Xisco and a free transfer who knocked back Swansea and west Ham to play for his boyhood club, we’d be happier if 10M had of had Cabella in a black and white shirt as well.

    QUITE happy with the Colback signing but we still seriously lack quality. We are still screaming out for a Cabaye replacement and 2-3 good strikers as well as one or two wingers. Still a lot of work to be done. I think Ince would be a step in the right direction, not sure if we are after him.

    Belfast mate he’s a striker/winger. He’s going to do everything for us. If he makes the first team eventually that is. If not it’s another comfy five years for him on good wages, like Xisco.

    RE Colback

    He is a young, English midfielder who wants to play for us. He hasn’t kicked a ball for us yet and yet people are already judging him, slating him and writing him off. Treat him like you would any other player who joins the club and judge him on his performances. Yes he’s joined from out local rivals but what does that mean? Does that make him a worse player? He will offer a consistent squad midfielder, something we haven’t had since Danny Guthrie. Not expected to be a game changer, but can offer a reliable member to rely on. You mustn’t forget that the second half of the season Sunderland were a better side than the diabolical performances we offered.

    Yes, good points. It seems easy to get carried away with all the negativity.
    And if I were Joey Barton I might be tempted to make up some sort of analogy here about going out on the lash and waking up the next morning realising that things aren’t quite the way they looked the night before and that we’ve blown the transfer kitty on a temperamental striker who is now giving you a serious headache.

    If we lose no more players and bring in two or three quality signings we will have a strong starting 11 and bench :

    ————-Sissoko————-Tiote—————
    —HBA—————De Jong———-Cabella—
    ——————-Lacazette/Gomis———————

    Bench:
    Elliot,Santon,Collo,Anita,Marv,Gouffran,Cisse

    Not bad and about as good as we can expect under Ashley.

    I see nothing wrong with signing Colback. But the main problem many of us have is that we almost never replace the quality we have lost. We didn’t replace Ba even after it became clear that Cisse was hopeless. We haven’t replaced Cabaye. We haven’t replaced Remy’s goals. We have an aging, slow central defense. We have no decent wingers except Gouffy. We are a disaster waiting to happen.

    Don’t count on 3 or 4 top signings. It ain’t going to happen mates. That’s for real clubs, not SD hoarding holders like us. We mainly exist to service Mike’s SD advertising needs. Ashley OUT!

    Thing the comments on the Colback signing are mixed. I am not ecstatic about it but he is a good squad player to have in and round the team. A bit like your Willows, Perch, R.Taylor’s of this world so to speak 🙂

    jail -evening – I would love to know what Percys’/Tubbs’ new project is. Probably the fans would like to know as well.
    We’ll be a stepping stone for decent players -with a contractual agreement that they can vamoose early to a CL club -so they do not get stuck here.

    No offense to Perez. I hope he does well. But he’s not what we need right now. We need starting players. He looks like he could be blown over by a mild breeze. He’ll get knocked about pretty badly in the development squad and end up injured straight away.

    Toon,
    I just don’t think anybody is overwhelmed by his signing, it doesn’t mean to say we’re not happy about it, but like tads says it is in a position we’re not desperate for and imo opinion he’s been signed because he’s free and there are better profit margins in free players that ones that cost money, if he is worth 5M in three years time he will be gone and the next freebie will be rolled out.
    Mister Tuff,
    It would be nice if they could share their vision for the future with us the paying customers, although we might not stomach the truth.

    usamag – interesting that you come from Ashington -I used to live at Bedlington many moons ago. I’ve never been to the US -seen lots of programmes on the telly about how strict they are across there. But it’s very good of the Warden to let you have internet time.

    Pardew had better be prepared for an extremely difficult summer followed by an even worse start to the season. He must be mad to stay on with this owner. MIke lost the plot some time ago. Once we’re in the bottom five he’ll panic but it will be far too late and he’s far too greedy in the short run to fix anything.

    “Worst signing in my life of being a newcastle fan.” “Jack Colback is just a very average Premier League player.” “Pile of S**te signing Colback is, offers nothing” Unfortunately just some of the responses on Twitter. However, it has got the Mackems knickers in a bit of a twist so for me, seeing them so wound up, Colback is worth every single penny. Wait a second…

    Foundations,
    Andy Carroll, Demba Ba and Cabaye lasted six months, a year and a half and two and a half years respectively for us in the PL, how can you lay foundations if the moment a player becomes a saleable asset he gets cashed in with no replacement, foundations made on sand.
