Newcastle striker Yoshinori Muto up for sale

Newcastle United striker Yoshinori Muto is on the move.

Muto's representatives have been told to find him a new club before the current transfer window shuts, says the Evening Chronicle.

Potential suitors in the Bundesliga - where he starred for Mainz 05 - and in La Liga are currently being spoken to.

Muto joined the club for £9.5million but has barely featured in 2020, playing on New Year's Day against Leicester City before limping off in the FA Cup at Rochdale with an injury.

The striker then played just four minutes after Project Restart in the 5-0 defeat at Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

If there is a chance to remove his £54,000 per week wages off the payroll and use the squad space to bring in a player of manager Steve Bruce's choice it will be taken.
