Leicester City have completed the signing of attacker Ayoze Perez from Newcastle United – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are buzzing about the deal.
The Foxes confirmed on their official website that the 25-year-old has completed a switch to the King Power Stadium and penned a four-year deal.
He spent five years at St James’ Park with Newcastle and has proven he can make a difference in English football.
The Spaniard is a versatile attacker that can play as a centre-forward or a winger and he enjoyed an excellent individual campaign last season.
Perez helped Newcastle maintain their top-flight status last season and was a key player for them.
He made 41 appearances across all competitions, scoring 13 goals and supplying four assists in return.
The attacker is renowned for his tireless work-rate and that is surely something that Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers is a big fan of.
A selection of Leicester supporters on social media have voiced their joy that Perez has now joined them and believe he’s a strong addition.
His versatility means he could compete for spots against the likes of Jamie Vardy, James Maddison, Demarai Gray and Harvey Barnes in the team.
Here are some of the Leicester fans commenting on the confirmed Perez deal:
