Ayoze Perez: I've surprised myself at Newcastle

Newcastle United striker Ayoze Perez admits he's surprised himself over the impact he's made.

Perez has enjoyed a stunning run of goalscoring form.

"I've settled in much quicker than I ever imagined I would," Perez told the Daily Mail.

"Being in Newcastle is a very different way of life to Tenerife. For a start the climate is very different.

"The city itself is beautiful and I really love being here and I'm trying different traditions. I have been to the rugby and have even tried fish and chips. Yes, I do feel the cold and I have been told by a lot of people that this is nothing and there is much more to come.

"But I have lots of coats and jumpers ready and I am happy to adapt. It won't be a problem."
