Benitez admits he is 'not happy' with Newcastle's transfer business so far

Jamaal Lascelles of Newcastle celebrates after scoring the first goal during the Sky Bet Championship match between Newcastle United and Leeds United at St James Park

The forward, who can be deployed as winger and midfielder, feels that he has not had a fair chance to impress Zinedine Zidane during Madrid's pre-season, and as a result could try to jump ship.

But now he is ready to establish himself as a Premier League player - and he is relishing the challenge of facing Tottenham Hotspur in United's curtain raiser on Sunday.

The former England Under-21 global had played a full part in Newcastle's pre-season campaign up to last week's win over Wolfsburg.

But while Perez is of interest to Newcastle, Benitez says the club will have to sell players before being able to bring in any more signings.

The former Liverpool and Real Madrid manager is said to be frustrated at the lack of activity and big name additions since their promotion and their squad is lacking the strength and depth to compete in the Premier League, with a striker still on the Spaniard's wishlist. This one is hard and tough.

Mitrovic, signed from Anderlecht two years ago, is a cult figure for many Magpie fans. "I try to do the best every training (session) and every game and to prepare myself". And the Serbia worldwide - who found opportunities hard to come by in the Championship last season because of the form of Gayle - hopes to repay fans for their backing.

"A bird that tests positive for WNV alerts health officials that the virus is present in an area". During 2002, the state documented its first human infections and 52 cases were reported that year.

"We are trying to move players out to bring players in".

"I'm not happy, but at the same time it's a challenge".

"Of course, they want to see the goals".

Mitrovic last week insisted he was "focused" on his Newcastle career despite continued speculation over his future.

"We missed some targets at the beginning and I think we are paying for that".

"This is a very hard negotiation but if I didn't think there was a chance I would say so".
