Newcastle fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are in good spirits despite being relegated as some of their stars are beginning to commit their future to the club.
According to ChronicalLive, Ayoze Perez has given Newcastle fans assurances that he has no intentions of leaving St James’ Park this summer.
He arrived at Newcastle last summer as a bargain from Tenerife and after impressing in his debut season in the top flight – Tottenham and Manchester United have both been linked with him.
The Magpies were aware of the interest surrounding the 22-year-old and he agreed a long-term deal until 2o21 and so if they do end up selling him, they will be able to demand a high fee for his services.
But despite this talk of a potential move away from St James’ Park, the Spaniard is determined to help Newcastle return to the Premier League. He said:
“Yes of course. I am with the team, I am with this city and I am with everybody.I want to be here to fight for the team and to come back. We need everybody to be together and be like a team.”
