Perez spent five reasons with Newcastle, with his best campaign coming last term as he netted 12 Premier League goals.
The Magpies’ future of the 25-year-old was always tied to Rafa Benitez’s contract’s decision at Saint James Park, and it has come as no surprise that he has left after the former Liverpool boss left for China.
