Striker drops major hint when asked if he’s on his way to NUFC – TWO signings now imminent?

Mainz striker Yoshinori Muto has dropped a major hint that he’s on his way to sign for Newcastle United, admitting that he should be able to deliver ‘good news soon’ and ‘grow as a player’ when asked about a potential move to St James’ Park.

German outlet ‘Kicker’ claimed last night that a deal was virtually done for the 26-year old and the striker has now been pictured on his personal Instagram page jetting out of Japan – with it seeming quite clear he’s now on his way to Tyneside to complete a move.

Here’s what he’s had to say to the Japanese press when asked about a potential move to NUFC as he headed out of Haneda Airport this morning:

“I can’t say yet but I should be able to deliver good news soon.

“I believe I’ll grow as a player if I put myself in a competitive environment.”

Here’s the picture he’s also posted on his own social media account this morning:

Muto has 20 goals and 10 assists across 66 games for Mainz and recently represented Japan at this summer’s World Cup.

It looks like it’s happening – and he may not be the only one to sign today, with Swiss centre-back Fabian Schar also booked in for a medical.

Two good signings for NUFC?

  1. One thing you can be assured with this lad is he will run his arse off for the cause, could turn out to be a bit of a cult hero at the Toon if he can score a few.
    Deffo an upgrade on Mitrovic.
