Newcastle striker Ayoze Perez’ agent has been responding to transfer rumours regarding his client.

Olaf Bonales has told media in Italy that he can’t see a move happening in the near future.

Having been previously linked to a move to Roma, Bonales was asked whether a move to Italy could still happen:

“At the moment I do not think so but who knows what will happen? We prefer to remain in England and he (Perez) still has four years on his contract with Newcastle.”

In an interview with Italian website calciomercato Olaf Bonales added:

Has Ayoze Perez been close to moving to Italy in the past?

“He was very close to joining Roma but in the end (Director of Football) Walter Sabatini didn’t close the deal. This was before he went to Newcastle in summer 2014. We were in Rome with the player’s father but in the end the requests we made weren’t met and they didn’t make us an appropriate offer.”

What about the talk surrounding Manchester United and other clubs?

“There is no need to change clubs, everything will happen naturally. Right now it is better that he is relaxed.”

  • Conman

    The lad has made a promising start but has a load of potential and hopefully will do it here Given the chance.
    But if we keep him on the bench like yesterday without a recognised goal scorer on the pitch, he’ll be off sooner rather than later

  • Corkyjohn

    He’ll never realise his potential unless Carver goes & the fatman changes the way he does business. He continuously rapes our club & gives nothing back…..fingers crossed for a fatal dose

  • Hez

    The only person talking about Perez and leaving NUFC is Carver, ridiculous statements to help generate interest, potentially sinking lower then the depths of Pardew

  • mick57

    Nice of carver to follow pardew and start the selling of our best players. Wonder what price we are after? The club continues to be a laughing stock from fatty to charva and his non coaching team to too many players making sure that they can go on holidays already.

    how about herdman and perez – pointy beard was really useless yesterday.
