Spanish player Ayoze Perez says he would not leave Newcastle United despite links to Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United until promotion is sure. Perez wants to remain at Saint James Park because he has a moral obligation to repay the fans after their relegation from the top flight at the end of the last campaign.
“The fans have always been very close and have always thanked me for staying – despite the interest that there has been from big clubs to sign me. I have a debt with the fans, I want to return to the Premier League with Newcastle. We must be professional,” the Spaniard said.
