Newcastle United: Magpies confirm loan exit of Yoshinori Muto to Eibar

Newcastle United: Magpies confirm loan exit of Yoshinori Muto to Eibar - Newcastle United Transfer Rumours

Newcastle United have confirmed the loan exit of Yoshinori Muto to Spanish club Eibar, as per the Magpies’ official website.

The Japanese international will spend the rest of 2020/21 on loan in Spain before returning to St James’ Park at the end of his spell.

Indeed, Muto’s time in the northeast was fairly limited last season, as the 28-year old managed to play only 10 matches in all competitions, scoring just a single goal and none in the Premier League, as per Transfermarkt.

Should Newcastle sell Muto?

In fact, Muto has been limited to just 28 games across all competitions over the last two seasons for the Magpies and has only managed to score twice (per Transfermarkt).

Therefore, it may be a good idea for the striker to move onto a team where he will likely play more regular first team football; and with the likes of Callum Wilson, Joelinton, Andy Carroll and Dwight Gayle currently occupying the forward options for Steve Bruce at this moment in time, it seems as if a loan move away from Newcastle may well suit Muto.

The centre-forward will want to show NUFC why they paid £9.63m to acquire his services from Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp’s former club Mainz, and he has even been described as a ‘top performer’ by Georg Holzner, the former Mainz correspondent for German football magazine Kicker (via The Chronicle).
