​DONE DEAL: Newcastle confirm deal for Mainz striker Muto

Newcastle United have completed the signing of Yoshinori Muto, after the Japanese international was granted a work permit.

Muto was not an automatic recipient, which meant he had to wait until an FA Governing Body Endorsement hearing.

It was a positive outcome for the club, who were able to complete the £9.5 million transfer from Mainz.

"I am really looking forward to playing in front of the fans," Muto is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"I hope to achieve good results - that is what I am here to do. I would like to perform well and leave my name in Newcastle's history."

He becomes the club's fifth signing in this transfer window.
