newcastle striker yoshinori muto joins laliga side eibar on season long loan deal

Newcastle have confirmed forward Yoshinori Muto will spend next season on loan at Spanish side Eibar.

The 28-year-old Japan international joined Newcastle from Mainz on a four-year contract in August 2018 for a fee of around £9.5million.

Muto, capped 29 times by his country, managed only two goals from his 28 appearances in all competitions for the club.

The striker had missed out on the pre-season training camp in York, and Newcastle refused to comment on his absence.

Sportsmail understood, however, that the club had been trying to move him on and believed his future was away from St James’ Park.  

‘Yoshi is a smashing lad. It hasn’t gone as well for him as I’m sure he’d have liked but he’s the ultimate pro,’ Steve Bruce said last week. ‘He probably needs to go somewhere and play. It’s not healthy that he’s not going to be involved.’

Newcastle have boosted their attacking options by signing striker Callum Wilson and winger Ryan Fraser among others this summer – and began the new campaign with a 2-0 win at West Ham.

Bruce’s side also advanced to the third round of the Carabao Cup with a 1-0 victory over Championship outfit Blackburn on Tuesday.

They next face Brighton in their second top flight clash on Sunday.

Floyd Mayweather once KO’d heavyweight with brutal body shot during a sparring session as training secrets are revealed

floyd mayweather once kod heavyweight with brutal body shot during a sparring session as training secrets are revealed scaled

FLOYD MAYWEATHER once dropped a heavyweight in sparring after just 30 seconds with a body shot, it has been revealed.

The 43-year-old unbeaten ring legend was renowned for his intense training sessions that lasted hours and would even take place in the early hours of the morning.

Mayweather was a pioneer for HBO’s ’24/7′ and Showtime’s ‘All Access’ pre-fight shows that would follow fighters with unprecedented access to their preparation.

But the American would have one restriction – there could be no filming of his sparring sessions.

Former Mayweather training partner Dmitriy Salita, now a promoter, has lifted the lid on what went on during these secret spars, as he revealed the five-division champion once floored a cocksure heavyweight with ease.

Salita told EsNews: “We were at the gym just hanging out, it was after one of Floyd’s fights.

“This guy comes into the gym, a heavyweight and said, ‘I wanna get some boxing’ and he was just talking a lot of smack.

“There was no-one big enough to spar so Floyd was like, ‘Leonard [Ellerbe], get my stuff from the car’.

“Floyd got in the ring with him for 30 seconds and does his shoulder roll and block and just hits the guy with a body shot, and drops him, a heavyweight.”

Former sparring partner Salita revealed Mayweather would spar four-minute rounds, with just 15 SECONDS breaks in between.

Mayweather retired officially in 2017 after beating UFC star and ring debutant Conor McGregor, but did return for an exhibition bout against Japanese kickboxer Tension Nasukawa a year later.

Despite leaving the sport on a perfect 50-0 record, the former pay-per-view king announced last November that he was “coming out of retirement in 2020” to work with UFC boss Dana White.

Mayweather said he would “absolutely” be interested in rematching McGregor or fighting UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, but insisted he would not face a recognised boxer.

Despite the comeback talks and clips of him returning to training, the 43-year-old was hit with double tragedy as his former partner and mother to three of his kids Josie Harris died a week before his uncle and ex-trainer Roger passed away.

Mayweather then announced online his attention had switched to becoming a trainer, having been inspired by Roger, as he took his son Kouran and nephew Chris on the pads.

Gareth Bale seals bargain £12m Tottenham loan transfer which could extend to NEXT season – when Real Madrid deal ends

GARETH BALE sealed his return to Spurs for the rest of the campaign — but could end up staying for LONGER.

Welsh superstar Bale was mobbed by fans when he arrived at Tottenham’s training ground on Friday to wrap up his season loan from Real Madrid.

The North London club have agreed to pay a percentage of his wages in a bargain deal which amounts to around £12million for the season — and they will officially confirm it today.

SunSport understands if the move goes well, it could even be extended for a further year until the end of NEXT SEASON, when his Bernabeu contract is due to expire.

Spurs have worked the numbers to keep within their wage structure and bring back Bale, 31, seven years after selling him to the Spanish giants for a then-world record £86m.

The North Londoners also completed a £25m swoop for Real left-back Sergio Reguilon on a five-year deal.

Spain ace Reguilon, 23, and Bale flew to London yesterday on a private jet chartered by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.

After landing at Luton airport, they were driven to the Enfield training HQ in separate luxury cars.

When they arrived they were greeted by dozens of fans who had congregated outside the gates.

Bale was all smiles as supporters with camera phones chanted: “Gareth Bale, Gareth Bale, he was born to play for Spurs.”

Both new boys also met boss Jose Mourinho, who had spent the night with his players in the training ground’s luxury lodge after arriving back from Thursday’s 2-1 win over Lokomotiv Plovdiv in Bulgaria early yesterday.

Mourinho then put his stars through a light training session ahead of their Premier League clash at Southampton tomorrow lunchtime.

After the victory in Plovdiv, Mourinho said: “I don’t like the number of players I have in my squad.

“It’s very, very difficult to manage in every aspect. Too many players.”

Mourinho’s comments hinted he is now looking to trim his squad.

Genoa target Danny Rose, Ryan Sessegnon, Juan Foyth, Paulo Gazzaniga and Erik Lamela are those likely to move on before the deadline.

GET ready for a Caledonian cavalry charge.

We are not talking about a stampede to the boozer before one of Matt Hancock’s early closing curfews.

This is the Ayr Gold Cup and it’s harder to crack than the Enigma code.

Mind you, William Hill report good money for the jolly Mr Lupton.

Richard Fahey’s flyer made Joe Wicks look like a coach potato when dotting up in Ireland last weekend.

He bounced out of that better than Zebedee and is an each-way bet to nothing.

And don’t forget Hills are going six places in the big race.

Biggest surprise of the weekend is that mighty Mark Johnston isn’t represented in the Gold Cup.

But Braveheart’s fan club certainly picked a pocket or two when Mister Allegro (14-1 to 17-2) landed a touch at Kempton Park on Tuesday.

Funnily enough ‘picking pockets’ has been the salvation of this fella.

Don’t miss the best of Sun Racing

You see, he has improved a stone since being gelded.

Anyway, Brazilian bullet Silvestre De Sousa says the horse will win again so stick him in your tracker.

Meanwhile, SDS misses Ayr and schleps down to Newbury this afternoon.

And the word is our former champ is expecting to collect on Sir Michael Stoute’s Aerion Power in the opener.

Mr Magoo spotted this one running a cracker on his debut and the Newmarket gallop watchers will be pleading poverty if he gets turned over.

There is no chance of Sir Alex Ferguson rattling a begging bowl.

But the great man must have been distraught after his well-backed Florence Street dropped anchor in an all-weather maiden.

Jockey Oisin Murphy looked baffled by the run. Then again, he probably had a result.

If the owner had turned-up he might have copped the `hairdryer’ treatment.

Fingers crossed, a few lucky punters will be able to attend meetings at Warwick and Newmarket next week.

ATALANTA’S BOY (2.30, Ayr) won well at Goodwood last time and has a massive each-way chance.

But getting into a racecourse is still almost Mission Impossible.

And that reminds me of a colourful character called Johnny The Slip. Now Johnny had an aversion to opening his wallet.

As a result, he developed several dubious schemes to swerve the turnstiles.

The most successful was a simple routine known as `the bucket’. Our man would wait in his motor with a plastic bucket in hand.

When a horsebox unloaded, he jumped out and followed the runner into the racecourse stables chatting away as if he was one of the stable-lads. It worked like a charm for years.

Mind you, Johnny did end up buying enough buckets to start a coast-to-coast window cleaning company.

Finally, if you want a jumper to follow try Suzy Smith’s Animal.

This fella raised a few eyebrows when he bolted-up in a bumper last spring. And it wasn’t long before a `telephone number’ offer arrived from one of jumping’s biggest owners.

But the man with the money wanted to move the horse to Nicky Henderson.

Suzy couldn’t wave adios to the apple of her eye so vetoed the sale.

As a result, she’s got an angry accountant and classy hurdler on her books.
