It was one year ago two days ago that Spanish U20 International Ayoze Perez made his debut for Newcastle and the 22 year-old has taken to Twitter to thank Newcastle fans for their support.
Ayoze was signed for around £1.4M from Tenerife and was brought in for Peter Beardsley’s Development squad but he did very well for us last season and scored 7 goals in 39 appearances for Newcastle last season.

Ayoze Perez was brought on in the 83rd minute for Manu Riviere in the opening game at home to Manchester City which we ended up losing 2-0.
This is what Ayoze tweeted yesterday:

With Newcastle having brought in Aleksandar Mitrovic, who is younger than Ayoze, it could be that the Spanish youngster doesn’t play as much this season, but it’s one of Steve McClaren’s jobs to bring players through on Tyneside.
We’ll have to see how things go through the end of the year, but if Perez doesn’t get enough playing time he could even be sent out on loan.
Ayoze is a smashing lad and must be given his chance this season, because he showed he can deliver the goods, under what were very trying circumstances last season at Newcastle.
Here’s Perez’ sensational goal at West Brom last season just to remind you of this lad’s skills.
