This Player So Loyal To Newcastle – Give Him A New Deal

12:34 pm, Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 8 Comments

Ayoze Perez has been speaking to Radio Club Tenerife this week and he has again revealed that some top clubs are after him in England – Tottenham and Manchester United are the two he mentions,  but once again he is very loyal to Newcastle United.

Newcastle gave him his big chance when we signed him from Tenerife a short 18 months ago for around £1.4M and since that time Ayoze has played in the Newcastle first team.

The 22 year-old has so far played 55 times for the first team with 11 goals – and a lot to those goals have won us games – at Spurs and Bournemouth recently to name but two.

This is some of what Ayoze has said on Radio Club Tenerife:

“There is much truth in the interest of Tottenham and Manchester United, also a Spanish club – I find it very satisfying, but my place is in Newcastle.”

“Old Trafford in Manchester is very nice, also Arsenal, Manchester City and our own St. James Park of course.”

“I always loved the Premier League and I was always following on television. It is the best league in the world, you end up adapting to play.”

“We must take care to live and prepare for football and you need to strengthen your weaknesses, after training usually go to the gym as you have to be physically ready to compete.”

“I am very grateful and I remember how it all began at CD Tenerife.”

With those words above he is also becoming a great Ambassador for Newcastle in Spain – and notice how grateful he is to his former club.

Ayoze was signed on for the Development team under Peter Beardsley, so the wages he will be getting today will in no way reflect what an important player he has become at Newcastle and the contribution he is making to the side this season – and the contribution he made last season.

So Newcastle should give him a new contract right now – and wait no longer.

That’s especially true when big clubs are taking a big interest in him.

Good clubs take care of their players and Newcastle should be showing some initiative and giving this lad a new and vastly improved five year deal.

That’s what well-run clubs do.

Comments welcome.

    Mag52-

    Re the famous “headbutt”. Firstly, it wasn’t one in the true sense of the word was it ?
    Secondly, most non partisan observers I have spoken to on the subject cannot believe that AP didn’t get 100% support from the fans for standing up, not only for himself but for the club, in the face of the aggressive behaviour of the Hull lout.

    …Really? It doesn’t count when what he intended to do didn’t come off well? I suppose the mackem connections probably did for Meyler in the sympathy stakes, but I just cant believe there was incredulity over nufc fans not getting behind his unprofessional, embarrassingly pathetic display performed in our name. Not purchasing, thanks.

    I still think Perez has a lot to go before big clubs look to sign him same with Sissoko their goals and assists are not great despite having excellent ability !

    Wijnaldum is the one I can see teams looking at if he played in a team that was dominating teams I could easy see him getting 15 or 20 goals a season in fact he might even get that with us this season despite being played out of position for the majority of it !!

    When Perez grabbed the last gasp winer against Spuds the cameras caught Messrs Ashley and Charnley hugging each other with excitement.

    Sad to say the cause of their merriment was not at Toons win, it was the realisation that Perez’s transfer had increased by another £1m!

    Lovely jubbly!!
