Newcastle Need To Give This Budding Superstar A New Deal

9:20 am, Tuesday, November 10th, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 8 Comments

Ayoze Perez is being linked with some big clubs – presumably for a January move and those clubs are Liverpool, Tottenham, and Manchester United who are all tracking the 22 year-old Spanish striker who has been in good form for Newcastle this season and he’s scored 3 goals in 10 appearances for us including the winner at Bournemouth on Saturday in the 1-0 win on the road – the first away win since 31st January.

Ayoze Perez – in demand

There was news earlier in the week from Sky Sports that Tottenham, and Manchester United were all tracking Perez with Liverpool compiling scouting reports on him.

We’d be very surprised if Perez is allowed to leave Newcastle in January and last March his agent Olaf Bonales didn’t think it would be good to leave Newcastle:

“I do not think there is a chance of him leaving, but who knows what will happen? We prefer to remain in England. If we need to change clubs, everything must go naturally. Now it is better to stay.”

We’d be surprised if any of that thinking has changed over the last eight months.

Perez joined Newcastle 17 months ago for €2M and turned down Barcelona and Real Madrid simply because he wanted a chance to play first team football and he’s been given that opportunity at Newcastle where he’s played 49 times for us with 10 goals.

If he moved to a bigger club there’s no guarantee he would play nearly as much as he plays at Newcastle.

But Ayoze has done enough to warrant a new improved deal from Newcastle and we hope he will sign a new contract to stay at Newcastle  over the next few seasons.

What do you think?

Comments welcome.

    Depending on what his original deal was, he probably deserves some kind of increase based on performances so far and potential. Just dont put a minimum fee release clause in like Ba.

    Deserves to be paid at least the same, if not more, than the Rivieres, Gouffrans, Obertans etc and doubt he is currently.

    out of all the players he is the player that probably deserves a pay rise at newcastle….great attitude,clever player and no where near the finished article yet….just hope he’s not tempted for the money and then ruins a promising start to good career by bein sat on the bench more then he should be….hopefully the club see him as a player to build on..not sell on

    Not convinced by the stockings though.

    Perez
    add Arsenal to the clubs reportedly after him.

    To clever a player to be playing for the TOON with the players he has around him – at the moment.
    Hopefully we can keep him till at least the summer (and beyond) but after that it is anyones guess were he will go.

    most likely I can see him going to Spain

    Players will always look to leave us if they are ambitious and performing well, playing in Europe will be the temptation until we start challenging for it again.

    As long as we get the right price for them, sell them at the right time for us and replace accordingly to i prove the squad then that is ok for me.

    Selling in January and taking 12-18 months to replace properly isnt the way though.

    An excellently created goal at Bournemouth, right out of Schteves football file. A quick change of pace, positive penetration and in a one on one situation with the goalkeeper. Mitro and Gini deserve the plaudits equally as Perez and shows how dynamic the team are becoming. However the oposition was weak, some of the other players were resting on their laurels and without the clean sheet the result would not have been positive.

    The whole club is a roller coaster, selling player’s that shouldn’t be, not replacing or buying the wrong players. Many fans think the team is better than it is, and there’s far too much doom and gloom around the club brought on by MA and his regime.
