Newcastle United fans have suggested that Ayoze Perez should leave, after his latest comments to the Chronicle.

Perez has refused to offer any guarantees that he will be at Newcastle next season.

“It’s something that I cannot say right now. You cannot guarantee it,” Perez said, when asked if he’d be at Newcastle next term.

“We’ll see. It’s going to be a long summer. Obviously, there’s going to be a day where you make a decision. It depends on many things. Let’s see what happens. Obviously, this place is always going to be in my heart, whatever happens. We’ll see what happens.”


The Spanish forward has made similar comments before, when he has suggested that a move could appeal.

And some Newcastle fans have accused Perez, who is on a £45,000-a-week contract at St.James' Park (Spotrac), of trying to get himself a move away from St. James’ Park.

Perez’s departure would hurt Newcastle, as he was one of their key attacking players last term.

The Spaniard was in great form towards the climax of the season, and ended up finishing on 12 goals for the campaign.

Perez’s departure from Newcastle is unlikely to take place any time soon though, as the Magpies are refusing to do any transfer business until Rafael Benitez’s future is sorted.
