Recent Newcastle signing comments on life in England after scoring first goal

St James Park

Newcastle United striker Ayoze Perez says he's enjoying life in the Premier League.

After a turbulent start to the season, Newcastle United finally seem to be turning the corner under beleaguered boss Alan Pardew.

Despite calls for Pardew to be sacked early on in the season, the Magpies' 2-2 draw with Swansea City seems to have galvanised the players in recent weeks.

A 1-0 win over Leicester City was followed up by a 2-1 victory at Tottenham Hotspur, and on Wednesday night, Newcastle made it three wins in a row by seeing off Manchester City 2-0 to reach the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup.

A number of players have emerged to be promising players for the Magpies, with the likes of Sammy Ameobi and Gabriel Obertan have returned to the line-up recently, but striker Ayoze Perez has particularly caught the eye.

The 21-year-old Spaniard arrived from Tenerife this summer, and whilst fellow striking arrival Emmanuel Riviere was expected to make more of an impact, Perez marked his first start with the winning goal against Tottenham, and says he's loving life in England.

"Each day I am better in England," Perez told Marca. "My debut as a starter was perfect with the goal against Tottenham. My adaptation is very good. From the first day my companions and the club have helped me.

"My objective is to work hard to convince the coach and I am very determined to triumph in Newcastle. Now I am living a spectacular moment in the Premier League which is incredible."

"I recommend this experience for any player. I dream of many years in this country," he added.
