Newcastle United are pleased to confirm the signing of Ayoze Pérez from CD Tenerife on a long-term contract.
The 20-year-old striker was born in Santa Cruz, Tenerife, on 23rd July 1993 and joined the youth set up at his local club in 2004.
Last season, Ayoze – as he is known – progressed to the first team, playing in the Segunda Division, Spain’s second tier. He enjoyed a prolific season for the Chicharreros, scoring 16 goals in 34 appearances.
Ayoze told nufcTV: “I’m very happy to be here to start this new adventure.
“I’m very eager for it to begin and I’m very pleased to play for this magnificent Club.
“Any football player would be interested in playing for such a Club and I will earn my position to get in the first team.”
