Lots of Newcastle United fans have reacted on Twitter to a post about former player Ayoze Perez.
Popular fan account @toonarmy_com tweeted about their ‘NUFC Advent Calendar’ where they select a highlight reel of a player depending on their shirt number. Well, yesterday was the 17th, therefore it was time for his reel – though it could be said that fans might have rather not seen that.
On the whole, the Spaniard endured a fantastic time on Tyneside on a personal level, as he managed to notch up a huge 195 games for the club, scoring on 48 occasions and assisting 17 times. He almost did too well at St James’ Park for fans, as it meant in the summer he was out as Leicester City snapped him up.
What will the result be on Saturday vs Palace?
More positively, he made the club a juicy £30m – a huge profit on their £1.8m buy from Tenerife – which has been able to be pumped back into the club for signings this summer. They have missed the goal threat he could bring, but they have got Allan Saint-Maximin who looks a really exciting prospect.
He would provide a great link between ASM/Almiron and whoever is number 9

With Leicester flying in the Premier League, he is likely to have no regrets about his move south to the East Midlands.
He hasn’t exactly been able to have the same big impact, scoring four goals in fourteen – with three coming in their 9-0 demolition of Southampton – however, he is still there and thereabouts with Leicester on their incredible run.
