Ayoze Perez is weighing up his Newcastle United future amid reports that West Ham United and Everton are keen on the Spaniard.

The 22-year-old only signed a new long-term contract in February, and is understood to be happy at the club.

However, he has become the latest Newcastle star to be linked with a move away from the club after relegation to the Championship, with claims Italian giants are also interested in the forward.

Perez is highly-rated by Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez, despite not playing his fellow Spaniard regularly from the start in the fight against relegation.

Perez would command a hefty fee – up to £15million – for any club hoping to lure him away from St James’s Park, but Benitez is under no pressure to sell.

The Magpies manager has been promised a healthy budget for next season in a bid to bounce back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

Perez cost just £1.8million when he signed from Tenerife in 2014.
