Newcastle United striker Yoshinori Muto completes loan move to Eibar

Japan international Yoshinori Muto has joined La Liga side Eibar on a season-long loan deal from Newcastle United, Daily Mail confirmed.

Muto signed with Newcastle from Bundesliga side Mainz 05 in the summer of 2018 where he managed to register a mere two goals in 28 appearances across all competitions.

According to Sportsmail, the 28-year-old was excluded from the preseason training camp in York and the club made no effort to explain his absence from the squad.

"Yoshi is a smashing lad. It hasn’t gone as well for him as I’m sure he’d have liked but he’s the ultimate pro," Magpies boss Steve Bruce said.

"He probably needs to go somewhere and play. It’s not healthy that he’s not going to be involved."

Newcastle recently retained the services of Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser from Bournemouth.
