Tenerife director of football Juan José Rivero isn't surprised by Ayoze Perez's success with Newcastle Unietd.

Perez has been in sensational goalscoring form for Newcastle in recent weeks.

"He meets the profile of our homegrown players," said Rivero.

"He is serious, hardworking and respectful of our methods.
