Newcastle striker Ayoze Perez: I'll have options this summer

Newcastle United striker Ayoze Perez admits he may seek a move away this summer.

Perez hit a hat-trick in victory over Southampton on Saturday.

“In the summer, there are going to be options," he said. “That means I have done ­something well. I'll be up for hearing what is coming, but it doesn't mean I am going to leave 100 per cent at the end of the season.

"It is going to be a difficult decision and depends on a lot of things."

Perez's goal haul against a Southampton side who started sluggishly, but looked the better outfit for much of the second half, took him to 11 for the ­campaign, one ahead of ­Salomon Rondon.
