Newcastle United striker Ayoze Perez is undergoing his medical at Leicester City, according to Sky Sports.

The Spaniard is set for a move to the King Power Stadium after the Foxes had a bid of £30million accepted after meeting his minimum release clause.

Perez had attracted previous interest from La Liga, with Valencia reportedly wanting the 25-year-old at the beginning of the transfer window.

The £45,000 per-week ace [Spotrac] finished the last Premier League as the club’s top scorer and scored 48 goals in his 195 appearances for the North East side.

Newcastle are set for a big profit on Perez, who arrived at St James’ Park in 2014 for only £1.5million.
