Newcastle breathe easy after Ayoze Perez hits hat-trick against Southampton

The manager is ready to permanently sell Gayle, who has been on fire while on loan at West Brom this season, scoring 21 Championship goals from 30 starts to put them on course for a place in the end of season play-offs.

"He knows his players, he trusts his own ability to get the best out of them and that's such an important thing for a manager to have". "I have to decide if we sign anyone, so we have to talk any time".

"As players we want him here, but we are not in control of whatever is going on".

Luke Walton is already facing controversy as he takes over the Sacramento Kings' head coaching job. Tennant said she confided with people at the time of the alleged attack but never filed charges.

"As players we want him here and Newcastle should do everything they can to keep him". That's why I've come on leaps and bounds.

"I should have done better with that goal".

Perez had to wait just four minutes to double his tally when Salomon Rondon's selfless run down the left gave him the opportunity to cross to the far post, where the Spaniard arrived on cue to beat the keeper from close range.

To be fair to the newspapers in Spain, the Newcastle United player has encouraged those rumours more than anyone else. That's the way we have to think.

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has called on his players to produce the flawless performance when they tackle a Watford side enjoying an "outrageous" season.
