Muto finalise Newcastle move

Newcastle United have completed the signing of striker Yoshinori Muto after he was awarded a work permit.

The Magpies had to wait for the relevant documents to be ratified in order to complete the deal, despite Muto having already agreed a 4-year contract.

The club confirmed that the process has been completed, meaning he becomes their 5th signing of the transfer window, following Martin Dubravka, Ki Sung-yueng and Fabian Schar and the loan deal for Kenedy.

"As the first Japanese Newcastle United player, I am honoured to be a player for such a big club," said Muto, who joins from Mainz for a reported 9.5m pounds fee.
