Only the biggest Newcastle fan will get 100% on this pub quiz... Against which team did Kieron Dyer and Lee Bowyer famously fight each other?

However, the journalist also revealed that the 19-year-old has signed a four-year deal with his parent club Santos Laguna, who would be ‘happy’ to take him back if Newcastle do not end up exercising their option to buy.

The Verdict: Under the radar

The signing of Munoz has gone somewhat under the radar given the focus on Steve Bruce’s team bringing in Joe Willock from Arsenal on a permanent deal. However, it is one which makes a lot of sense, as the teenager is certainly a player who can develop in the Academy.

The Mexican has already shown that he can score goals for both club and country, netting eight times in 16 games for the nation’s under-17s in addition to bagging three goals in 19 matches for Santos (Transfermarkt).

At just 19 years of age, the Magpies will be hoping that he can fulfil his potential with them, and hopefully his loan deal will ultimately be made permanent if all works out well.
