Newcastle United fans have reacted to a social media post regarding Ayoze Perez’s performances at St. James’ Park.

The Spanish forward arrived at Newcastle after a spell in his homeland from Tenerife and made a good first impression at the club.

During five years with the Magpies, the 26-year-old managed to score 48 goals in 195 appearances, prompting eventual interest from Leicester City, where he made a move last summer for a deal worth £30m.

Since moving to the former Premier League champions, Perez has continued his form, netting seven goals in 23 games, but some fans have debated his performances for the Foxes.

Perez’s goals for Leicester have helped Brendan Rodgers’ side sit third in the Premier League table and on route to a securing a Champions League spot for next season.

One Newcastle fan account furthered the debate, reacting to a post by LeicestershireLIVE which claimed saw Leicester fans call the forward ‘lazy’.

Reacting on social media platform Twitter, countless Newcastle fans seemed to disagree and shared their opinion on the forward.

What did you make of Ayoze Perez's time at the club?

He did very well

No he was not good enough
