Newcastle United striker Ayoze Perez has taken to social networking site Twitter to bid a fond farewell to Steven Taylor.

Taylor is set to leave Newcastle in the summer transfer window after over 20 years at the club. The 30-year-old defender joined the Magpies back in 1995 and made his first-team debut in 2003.

The Englishman played to the best of his ability at St. James’ Park, and now he is set to leave Newcastle, who got relegated from the Premier League at the end of the 2015-16 campaign and will play in the Championship next season.
