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

"As the first Japanese Newcastle United player, I am honoured to be a player for such a big club".

Announcing the news on their official website, Newcastle's statement claimed Rondon was Benitez's "number one transfer target" this summer.

"The manager attracted me", Gayle told West Brom's official website.

"I am really pleased to have Yoshinori Muto with us".
