Newcastle Have Made Me A Better Person And Better Footballer

Ayoze Perez is catching the eye of a number of Premier League clubs for his excellent play for Newcastle United both this season and last season.

One of those clubs interested is reported to Tottenham Hotspur and his spectacular stoppage time winner last Sunday will make them even more keen on the 22 year-old Spanish striker.

But Ayoze is consistent in his praise for Newcastle United and he has again talked about how he likes it at Newcastle:

“Newcastle have made me a better person and a better footballer,”

“I’m really happy here and that’s what I have to think – try to do my best every week, grow as a player and that’s it.”

“I have two more years here, so a long time, and that’s good for me because every day I want to grow as a player and try to be in the team and score goals.”

The Spanish U21 striker played 39 times last season with 7 goals and so far this season he has four goals in 16 total appearances this season for Newcastle.

Perez was left out of the first team  rather unfortunately a couple of games ago and he is fighting to regain his starting position.

This is what Ayoze said on nufcTV after he signed and was visiting St. James’ Park and had just met with Peter Beardsley – as he was expected to be part of the Development squad:

“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,”

His signing seems to have been  a win/win for both player and club – and as we said he just seems to love Newcastle.

We thought Ayoze signed on a five year deal so that runs out in June 2019?

He’s just a smashing lad and one of our favorite players at the club.
