Done deal: Newcastle sign striker on five-year deal

perezzzzzNewcastle United fans in the Transfer Tavern have blitzed through our barrels today, as they find their club becoming the most active in the window thus far.

Following confirmation of Seydou Doumbia arriving on-loan from Roma, ESPN report official confirmation that Ayoze Perez has signed a new deal with Newcastle United that keeps him tied until 2021.

The talented young forward has attracted vast interest after excelling on Tyneside but the latest deal puts the end to any speculation, with the player clearly thrilled with his new deal.

“It’s a special day for me, a big day for me. The truth is I’m really happy here, so it’s a good thing for me — and I hope it’s the same for the Geordie family. Newcastle gave me everything and I’m really pleased to sign this new contract.”

Perez shares his delight with his manager, with Steve McClaren heralding the youngster as a key part of the Newcastle project.

“I am delighted that Ayoze has signed a new deal. He is a very good player with huge potential and someone we believe has a very big future at Newcastle United. We are building this Club for the long-term and Ayoze is a very important part of that.”

Our landlord is delighted that in all the craziness of Deadline Day, a youngster is still able to have his future assured.
