Another day begins, so does another day of misery for Newcastle supporters, judging by their reactions on social media.

It appears Ayoze Perez is joining Leicester. Losing last season’s top-goalscorer is not what has infuriated the fans the most though, nor the £30million price. The thing that has most upset the Toon Army is knowing the money received is unlikely to be reinvested.

Some fans have even acknowledged the transfer equates to good business, he did only cost £1.8million five years ago. And after all, last season was the first time he achieved double figures for league goals, he has hardly been prolific in front of goal.

However, with him leaving and without Salomon Rondon there is no question this team will struggle for goals. Fabian Schär, the defender, was Newcastle’s third-top league scorer last season, with four.

The supporters do not begrudge Perez leaving, but they did take to Twitter to share their reactions on how much of the fee they believe will be made available.

One stated ‘realistically we all know where that is going’ whilst another felt it was a ‘fantastic price but a shame the club won’t see any of it’ to reinvest.

  • Well anyone not accepting that kind of money for perez would have to be off there rocker he won’t be scoring any were near 20 goals in a season which makes sense to off load him for half of that fee 30 million Leicester must be really struggling for forwards if they rate him that highly
