But the 28-year-old found his chances severely limited, with Perez starting just twice in the Premier League in 2016-17.He suffered with a thigh injury in March but even when he returned to full fitness he failed to make a single matchday squad, before being named on the bench for the FA Cup final win over Chelsea.
