Ayoze Perez's Newcastle future has been thrown into doubt as he admits he would like to return to La Liga
The Magpies signed the 25-year-old in 2014 from Spanish second division side Tenerife for £1.5million.
Now Perez is hoping to be called up to the Spanish national squad and one day, a return to his home country.

'I am very grateful to Newcastle, but it is obvious that someday I would like to come back and play in La Liga, ' Perez told Marca
'I am ready and with tremendous hope of being able to see myself in a list of Spain. It would be incredible for me. I, in any case, keep fighting. I hope it happens.'
Ex-Liverpool and Spain forward Luis Garcia believes Perez has what it takes to play for Spain.
'It's a difficult one at the top because we have been struggling having different strikers, with, Rodrigo, Costa and Morata being the ones [playing in those positions] ' Garcia told Sky Sports
'But he [Perez] is doing a great job and he definitely deserves a try because he has been amazing. It's not easy on a team that has been on the re-build and doesn't have any help.'
Perez scored twice to help Newcastle pull off a stunning comeback against Everton last weekend.
