It has been another summer of frustration and false promises for Newcastle but fortunately Rafael Benitez has a habit of making something out of nothing.

Newcastle United look set to be without defender Florian Lejeune for a prolonged period of time, with the French centre-half rupturing his cruciate ligaments in Saturday's 0-0 pre-season friendly draw with Porto.

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

The 23-year-old has been linked with a return to Craven Cottage since the transfer window opened, and according to Sky Sports News, a £20m offer has now been accepted by Newcastle.

This past season, his third with Mainz in Germany's top league, Muto scored eight goals in 27 games.

"Yes. We did this business with Muto because we needed to do something more".

"He played in the World Cup in a good team".

Newcastle are in talks with West Brom to complete a deal for striker Salomon Rondon this summer.

"So, hopefully we can bring someone to replace him, quickly".

Rondon scored seven goals and provided three assists for West Brom last season, finishing as joint top-scorer alongside Jay Rodriguez.

Fulham reportedly have a £20m bid for Serbia forward Aleksandar Mitrovic accepted by Newcastle United.
