Local Journalists Confirm Fee For Ayoze Perez To Leicester Is £30m



Three local journalists; Miles Starforth with the Shields Gazette, Keith Downie with Sky Sports, and Lee Ryder with the Chronicle have all confirmed that the deal for Ayoze Perez will be for £30m and not the £16m as reported by the Daily Star earlier today.

This may have been an amount inserted into his contract as a release clause. Here are the three tweets by the local journalists:

So it does appear that a fee of £30m has been accepted by Mike Ashley and Newcastle United for the reportedly want-away player. This is fair value for Ayoze if he was determined to leave.

Graeme Bailey had earlier reported that Ayoze Perez was not going to sign a new contract and with only 2 years remaining on his current deal, now may have been the only time to sell for maximum value.

We are very disappointed to see that Ayoze will leave and now play for another Premier League club. We feel that he is justified in wanting to leave, as five years at a club run by Mike Ashley has to be frustrating. However, we think there could have been better opportunities for him if he had waited.

It looks like he may have jumped at the first option that presented itself to him. This may be a common theme this summer with our squad.

We hope that Lee Ryder is accurate in his assertion that the £30m will be pushed into the transfer kitty. However, we have our doubts as Mike Ashley has never done that in his time at Newcastle despite claims to the contrary. We have no reason to believe he will at this point in time either.

Then again maybe this can be combined with the Wijnaldum, Sissoko, and Mitrovic money and we could have quite the kitty on our hands. Assuming that the summer of 2015 was when he spent the Andy Carroll and Yohan Cabaye money.

But the fee does not really matter in any case. We will now have to replace Ayoze Perez and in the current market wide forwards are very expensive as they play such a vital role in the modern game.

Ayoze Perez joined Newcastle in July of 2014 for about £1.5m from Tenerife. He made 195 appearances for Newcastle with 48 goals and 17 assists.

    Oh well, that might give food for thought to all those that boo’d him, and Rafa for bringing him on while Mikey sat there smirking.

    beefman13,
    And how much for the guy who’s going to get us 13 PL goals, in fact how much for the two guys to get us 13&12 each?

    Repost and more
    I hope it doesn’t come to this and we get a takeover.

    I’m guessing it would make more of an impact if those of us on 10 year deals who are looking to cancel wait until after the Arsenal game, and boycott it of course.

    That way our season tickets won’t go up for sale prior to the season, we will only incur probably one extra payment and all those who wanted a season ticket who didn’t have one last season will already have signed up in different seats by then.

    This would only allow the tickets to be sold later in the year as part season tickets and general sale tickets.

    one fine day, that’s a nice piece of emotional writing mate.

    Just so you know it’s working, both carltoon and BobbyBee who have passionately defended their right to attend matches (not unreasonably in my eyes) have said they will stay away for the Arsenal match if it comes to it.

    If this sale of Perez is actually the start of a fire sale, on top of Rafa leaving and the fat one failing to sell, they won’t be the only ones I’m sure.

    30 million for a guy who was talking about leaving all the time isn’t bad management of the situation to be fair. Its what happens with the money we get, that counts.

    Cheers Chancel.

    Someone said it’s nonsense as they tried to email accounts@monochrome.ae. I think they made the wrong assumption and the address is actually @monochrome.acquistions.com

    If you use that as a URL http://www.monochrome.acquisitions.com/ you get a bunch of programming language (html5) which looks like it’s a site which is a very early work in progress.

    Any web devs out there?

    wonder if we will also get (depending on his wages) around 3 million also to contribute to the wages of the next signing. (35k per week – would give 3,640,000 over 2 years i reckon)

    perhaps the local journos should find that out too 🙂

    Sheik, He’s not been sold yet, just deal agreed, personal terms and medical still to go. Joselu’s deal is much further on and he’s still here.

    Sheikh-en but not stirred, the Perez transfer is not yet complete, it’s no further forward than the Joselu sale to Alaves, and NezzaNUFC pointed out on the last thread why a sale could happen during a takeover while a purchase cannot.

    Really it has no bearing on the takeover at all, especially as there’s a general belief that Leicester have activated a release clause, meaning there is no decision to make, we had to accept the bid.

    Yeah I know that but still a concern .. you would think that the assets can’t be sold during takeover??

    Having said that, Perez was not really an asset most of the time

    Takeover is 100% off. The new manager is a head coach with no say on transfers.

    This much is obvious.

    I was holding on to that as well… Perez was a release clause and joselu would not be.. hence why one looks like it may happen the other in waiting mode

    I could be wrong, but my understandingis that once the deal has been agreed and the documents are filed for change of ownership, no transfers in or out until the change of ownership and transfer of shares has been completed. Perhaps NY mag has more of an idea about this.

    I know I read this somewhere during the Neymar deal, that the selling club get the whole fee up front. I can’t remember the source but I am sure. We could relent and allow staggered payments.

    Beefman. That’s claptrap. The club took a kid from a lower overseas league, developed his game to the extent he was top goal scorer – keeping us up two seasons running. Then after his breakthrough season, ahead of his peak years sell him to a rival team. Anyone who watched him this year could see he’d gone up a level – scoring for fun in fact. The fact he was determined to go should worry you because he won’t be the last this summer.

    This takeover is real, NUFC is at its optimum price for a sale it’s not going to get any better for Ashlie he has to sell. The only thing that will happen now is the price for the club will go down. Everything is in place for the sale new manager in place calling the shots from behind closed doors. It’s real it’s happening Allie is not an idiot when it comes to money, he’d rather take a smack in the mouth than lose a quid.

    He was an asset, a big asset. He played to instruction, ran around, shut down, won the ball, created and scored, some astonishing goals among theml, for essentially a defensively minded lower epl side, and he played lots. We’ve lost a good player, and Leicester have got themselves a good one. But yeah, 5 years is great service, good luck to him, and God help us.

    Perez ‘not an asset’ is cretinous bordering on comical. He was key to almost every victory for two years. Scoring goals in a defensive team, scrapping for survival is a thankless task. Lost on some but hopefully not all. Almiron got no goals and no assists and ran around while Perez tucked chances away to keep us up.

    Of course not one penny will go to your club. Why would we give any money to Sunderland?

    Yes, don’t get in the way of Ashley and a quid, and I agree, this is the very much the time to sell, but if he IS selling then he’s playing an amazingly high stakes game, because if it isn’t yet all but done then we are in real real trouble, being halfway through the window and in such disarray. No doubt about it, if a sale isn’t imminent, and the odds of that must now be very slim indeed, we are squarely looking at the drop. Squarely.
