20.01.2015 - Already grabbing regular headlines with his performances in the English Premiership, Pérez could be in line for his first senior international call-up judging by comments made by Spain manager, Vicente del Bosque.  Asked about possible inclusions for the next bout of internationals in the spring, del Bosque - who flew to Tenerife for the youth tournament in Playa de Las Américas at the end of December - said that Pérez was, “A pleasant surprise” during his first few months with Newcastle and would continue to mature as a player in England.  “He has been doing good things and may well be in with a shout to bolster the forward line in March if he continues as he is.” said del Bosque.  The 21-year-old from Santa Cruz has played for the Under-21 side on two occasions.

He is not the only member of the Pérez family to ply his trade in the north-east of England, as older brother Samuel is currently playing for non-league Blythe Spartans.
