Gary Lineker has revealed he was “really impressed” with Ayoze Perez last season as Leicester City confirm his capture from Newcastle United.

The Spanish forward had been at Newcastle for five years, having signed for the Magpies back in 2014, going on to establish himself as a crucial member of the squad on Tyneside.

With 33 goals in the English top flight, 12 of which came last season, he sits ninth in the club’s all-time top Premier League goalscorers list, a table topped by Alan Shearer.

Leicester supporter Lineker sent a message to the Newcastle and England legend on Twitter, insisting that his Foxes side would look after the 25-year-old following his move.

Lineker wrote on his personal Twitter account: “Good signing for LCFC. Really impressed with Ayoze Perez last season. We’ll look after him Alan Shearer.”
