Perez sends Rondon Twitter message

Benitez has endured a hard relationship with the club's owner Mike Ashley, with the former Liverpool and Real Madrid boss wanting assurances over the club's ambition before making a decision on his long-term future.

Goals from Jonjo Shelvey, Ayoze Perez, Fabian Schar and Salomon Rondon meant Rafael Benitez's Newcastle ended the season in 13th place.

"I try to enjoy what happens today and we will see what will happen".

"I'm optimistic that he will stay; I hope he stays, everyone hopes he stays". Until you sit down and start talking, you will not know where you are.

Already-relegated Fulham's season in the Premier League came to an end with a whimper rather than a bang on Sunday as they were hammered 4-0 at home by Newcastle United.

And although managing director Lee Charnley has stressed that Newcastle want the 59-year-old to remain at St. James' Park, Benitez is seeking assurances before he signs on the dotted line.

Aston Villa top scorer Tammy Abraham is once again attracting interest from Premier League sides, with Newcastle United now being credited with interest in the Chelsea youngster.

And when asked if the players wanted Benitez to stay, Ritchie admitted they were 100 per cent behind him. "We can't affect it but it is down to the manager and the board. On my future we have to wait, after this game I have to concentrate on the national team, Copa America with Venezuela in Brazil".
