Newcastle United have announced that Yoshinori Muto has joined La Liga’s Eibar on loan for the rest of this season.

Muto is the second senior Magpie to move on loan this summer. Florian Lejeune joined Alaves last weekend. He had joined Newcastle from Eibar in 2017.
Muto just never hit the ground running when he joined from Mainz for £9.5m. He’s had a few injuries in his two seasons on Tyneside but last season had only 10 appearances with 4 starts.
Like Lejeune, the 28-year-old still has two years left on his contract. Both will hopefully now be able to get some much-needed game time to get their careers back on track.
