Newcastle United striker sets his sights on winning the Championship, fans delighted

Newcastle United star Ayoze Perez has his sights firmly set on claiming victory in the Championship during the upcoming season.

Despite being linked with the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Barcelona, Ayoze Perez has pledged his allegiance to Newcastle United and the striker staying put at St. James’ Park certainly serves as a huge boost for the Magpies.

Perez has been one of the rare shining lights in what has been a couple of very difficult few seasons for Newcastle and many now believe that the Spaniard is more than capable of taking the English Championship by storm during the upcoming campaign.

Perez also seems to be in very positive mood ahead of the season and upon his return to pre-season training recently, the 22-year-old has posted a message on social media website Twitter stating that he has set his sights on winning the Championship in May.

He posted:

Fans were understandably pleased with Perez’s optimism and they have gone on to respond to the striker with a lot of delight.
