Newcastle boss Pardew excited by Ayoze Perez deal

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is delighted with their swoop for Tenerife striker Ayoze Perez.

Pardew has admitted that Newcastle fought off a host of clubs to win the race to sign the striker.

He said in a club statement: "We're delighted to confirm our first signing of the summer and very pleased to have Ayoze at Newcastle United, as a number of other clubs were chasing his signature too.

"He had a terrific season in Spain last year and is a player who we hope to develop further on Tyneside.

"He's only 20 but has a very good eye for goal and that's a great asset for any young player to have."
