Position:
Forward
Date signed:
2nd August 2018

Yoshinori Mutō is a Japanese international forward who joined Newcastle United in the summer of 2018 from Bundesliga side Mainz 05.

Yoshinori - known as Yoshi - signed an initial four-year contract and had appeared for his previous club against the Magpies in a 2017 summer friendly in Germany.

He became the fifth player to link up with United ahead of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign, following the permanent arrivals of Martin Dúbrvaka, Ki Sung-yueng and Fabian Schär, and the loan capture of Kenedy.
