Rafa Benítez's angry message to Newcastle United owner

Muto-Rafa Benitez

The Japan global becomes The Geordies fifth signing of the summer, joining Martin Dubrvaka, Ki Sung-yueng and Fabian Schar, as well as the loan capture of Kenedy, at St James' Park.

Newcastle United have bolstered their attack with the addition of Japan worldwide Yoshinori Muto.

The 26-year-old told Newcastle's official website: "I am very happy to be a player for Newcastle".

The Magpies had to wait for the relevant documents to be ratified in order to complete the deal, despite Muto having already agreed a four-year contract.

"I hope to achieve good results - that is what I am here to do".

His anxieties are amplified by an unresolved debate between the players and the board over bonus payments but there appears to have been an erosion of trust between the manager and Lee Charnley, the Newcastle managing director who serves as a conduit between Mike Ashley, the club's owner and Benitez. "I would like to perform well and leave my name in Newcastle's history", Muto added.

News of the Muto signing being finalised comes after Benitez was quoted by The Chronicle after Wednesday night's 4-0 friendly loss at Braga that he was "really worried" about transfers.

Benitez then said of Newcastle's fans: "They have to be concerned".

But, we must stress, the deal is only for this season, come next May both players will return to their parent clubs.

"We are concerned. Everyone in the dressing room was really upset with our performance and with how things are going, but we will try to change things in the next 10 days".

Newcastle begin their league campaign by hosting Tottenham Hotspur at St James' Park on Aug 11.
