Newcastle in talks for West Brom striker Salomon Rondon

Mainz Confirm Yoshinori Muto Is Newcastle United Bound

The fee is reported to be £9.5m and he would boost the options for a team who scored 39 league goals last season, the second fewest of the top 14.

Newcastle United has struck a deal on Japan worldwide striker Yoshinori Muto's transfer from Mainz, the English Premier League club announced Friday.

Manager Rafael Benítez confirmed that his club are on the verge of selling forward Aleksandar Mitrovic to Fulham and the manager hopes that they can quickly turn those funds into cover for Lejeune's injury.

"We needed a centre-back before [Lejeune's injury] and still we need maybe another one".

Temperatures to PLUMMET this weekend after record breaking 37c HEAT
Yellow warnings for rain have also been issued for Northern Ireland on Saturday, with thunder possible. There is now a 90 percent chance of heatwave conditions between Monday and Friday this week.

Muto becomes Newcastle's fourth signing of the summer, subject to work permit regulations, as the club look to build on last season's Premier League survival.

The 26-year-old Muto, who played for Japan at this summer's World Cup, scored a personal-high eight goals in 27 matches in his third season with the German club.

Newcastle are in talks with West Brom to sign striker Salomon Rondon, according to Sky sources.

It is not the first time the highly-rated Newcastle skipper has been linked with an exit and it is unsurprising to see the Chronicle state that the Magpies will resist any approaches for the 24-year-old, although it is hard to see them rejecting an approach worth over £30 million.
