Newcastle sign Spanish striker in first transfer move

Newcastle United have made their first signing, locking in 20-year old Spanish striker Ayoze Perez.

Alan Pardew and Mike Ashley didn't waste much time in bringing in Newcastle United's first signing, as the team has reportedly come to terms with 20-year old Tenerife striker Ayoze Perez in a transfer move, their first one of the offseason.

The fee is believed to be Perez's buyout of roughly £2 million and it is expected he will be at least a substitute player for the Toon early on. Perez scored 14 goals in 34 matches this past season for Tenerife in Portugal and was also courted by FC Porto, but instead chose to come to Tyneside on what's believed to be a four-year deal.

Perez has yet to represent Spain in any level of international play, but he was one of the top players in the Portugal second league. Perez reportedly is comfortable playing the ball with either foot and brings pace out wide, which is something Newcastle has desperately needed. He can also play up front as a striker or wide as a winger, on either side of the pitch.
