Ayoze Perez quitting Newcastle over Benitez exit

Rafa Benitez's departure has motivated Ayoze Perez to leave Newcastle United.

The Spaniard left Toon last week after his contract expired.

The Chronicle says Perez wanted to stay at the Magpies if they showed a desire to move to the next level.

However, the failure to keep Benitez has given Perez the impetus to look elsewhere.

Leicester are reportedly prepared to pay £30m for the 25-year-old, who scored 13 goals last season
