Newcastle United’s First Signing In 18 Months Confirmed

6 years ago

At last, final confirmation that Newcastle United have made their first signing in 18 months, with Ayoze Perez revealed at St.James’ Park.

The Tenerife striker had been widely reported/rumoured to be coming to Tyneside for a fee of around £1.6m.

The 20 year old (turns 21 in July) having scored 16 goals this season in 34 Spanish second division appearances.

Sadly/amusingly, instead of revealing official confirmation of a signing like normal clubs, Perez’ affirmation as a Newcastle United player has arrived via photos circulated on social media.

The images below, apparently taken by one of the forward’s mates/family as he was shown around St.James’ Park by Peter Beardsley, the man for every occasion seemingly to fill in, instead of doing it properly with an official photo shoot and Manager/Chairman there.

Maybe it is so long since we signed somebody that they’ve forgotten what to do…
