Newcastle United fans in the Transfer Tavern will be delighted to hear that Ayoze Perez has expressed his happiness to be playing for the club this week.
The Magpies look to have secured their place in the Premier League after their 2-1 win against Arsenal at St. James’ Park in which Ayoze Perez continued his goal-scoring run by notching the equaliser shortly after Alexandre Lacazette had given Arsenal the lead.
The Spaniard delighted the punters clad in black and white propping up our bar with his impact, and the Magpies faithful will also be pleased to hear the comments he has made in the Spanish media since the weekend fixture.
The stylish number ten has found life difficult in the North-East at times this season, however, it appears he has started to find form at just the right time by scoring crucial goals during Newcastle’s positive run of results. He was subjected to plenty of criticism from his own supporters earlier in the season, but he has established himself as a firm fan-favourite in recent weeks.
“I am very comfortable in Newcastle,” he told AS in Spain.
“It is the club that has given me the opportunity to play 100 games in the Premier League. I am happy and in the long term I do not know what will happen. Let what must come and be good come.”
Newcastle fans in the Tavern will be pleased with the comments made by Perez which imply that he wants to remain at the club beyond the end of the season, and they will be hoping he can continue to go from strength to strength during the dying embers of the campaign.
