Newcastle agree deal to sign Japan’s Yoshinori Muto from Mainz

Yoshinori Muto of Japan is challenged by Jacek Goralski of Poland during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group H match between Japan and Poland at Volgograd Arena

However, this is Newcastle United and with such limited funds and so many positions needing strengthening, little wonder that Rafa Benitez has been forced to try and loan him.

One player who could be arriving at St James Park, according to the news source, Sky Sports, is the West Bromwich Albion striker Salomon Rondon.

"I'm delighted to announce that Aleksandar Mitrovic is back where he belongs at Fulham Football Club!"

The 26-year-old, who has netted twice in 25 global appearances, impressed during the World Cup as the Samurai Blue reached the round of 16.

Newcastle United has struck a deal on Japan worldwide striker Yoshinori Muto's transfer from Mainz, the English Premier League club announced Friday.

Mitrovic, 23, scored 12 goals in 17 games last season after joining Fulham on loan on deadline day in January, helping the London club to promotion after navigating through the playoffs.

"Newcastle United can confirm that Japan worldwide forward Yoshinori Muto has been on Tyneside today ahead of a proposed move to the club", the Magpies confirmed in a statement.

Newcastle fans could be set for a very nervous few days if reports are to be believed, as The Sun states Leicester City are eyeing a swoop for captain Jamaal Lascelles amidst Manchester United's interest in World Cup icon Harry Maguire. He scored 17 times in 72 games for the Magpies.
