Newcastle boss Bruce: Eibar a good move for Muto

Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce says Eibar is a good move for Yoshinori Muto.

The Japan striker has joined Eibar on a season-long loan today.

Bruce said: "I believe Muto has travelled to Spain with a view to a loan deal, so we hope that he can go and complete that and go and get some football.

"He hasn't really played a lot and with the additions we have brought in this year, we think it's best for him to go and play somewhere where he's going to enjoy his football."

The £9.5million signing from Mainz 05 failed to break into Bruce's plans during pre-season despite a shortage of strikers at one stage.
