Perez replies to Shearer Twitter post after Newcastle exit is wrapped up

Perez replies to Shearer Twitter post after Newcastle exit is wrapped up

Ayoze Perez has left Newcastle United, with his move to Leicester City confirmed by the club's official website, and has appeared to aim a dig at Newcastle and its owner in his comments.

The striker has managed just four league goals in 51 appearances over two seasons, while new boy Ayoze netted a season-high 12 league goals in 37 appearances last term.

But it is Brendan Rodgers' Leicester who have jumped to the head of the queue, and a surprise move will now be completed in the coming days.

The Foxes' second signing of the summer, following James Justin's arrival from Luton, is looking forward to opening a new chapter in his career.

His arrival at the club will provide fresh impetus and competition for Jamie Vardy up front, with Kelechi Iheanacho and Islam Slimani the only other options now at Rodgers' disposal.

Economic Survey projects 7% GDP growth in 2019-20
The current account deficit (CAD) in the economy increased from 1.9% of GDP in 2017-18 to 2.6% in April-December 2018. The trade deficit increased from US$ 162.1 billion in 2017-18 to US$ 184 billion 218-19.


The 45-year-old has insisted in the past that he is determined to see out his contract with the Belgium national side, however, he has never hidden the fact that he would like to return to management in the Premier League (The Sun).

"I'm very happy and very pleased", he said.

Newcastle United have reportedly made contact with Roberto Martinez over the vacant managerial position at St James' Park.

"The club wants to keep growing as much as they can and that's something I like". I spoke with the manager and that was important. In what has been one of the most turbulent weeks in the club's recent history, promises of signings and bumper budgets may come as little comfort to Newcastle supporters.

"He's quick, has a good eye for goal and he's experienced in the Premier League too".
