Newcastle Sign Muto

Yoshinori Muto has signed for Newcastle

Newcastle have completed the signing of Yoshinori Muto on a four-year deal after the Japan international was granted a work permit.
Muto had to wait on an FA Governing Body Endorsement (GBE) hearing to find out whether he can complete his £9.5m move to Newcastle.

He did not meet the automatic criteria for an FA GBE, having not played enough international matches for Japan in recent seasons.
The 26-year-old agreed personal terms and completed a medical last Friday ahead of a permanent switch from German club Mainz.Muto said he was “honoured” to become Newcastle’s first Japanese player, though, after his deal was confirmed once his case was heard by an Exceptions Panel.
