Sam Allardyce has his say on Rafa Benitez's stand-off with Mike Ashley

Newcastle begin their league campaign by hosting Tottenham Hotspur at St James' Park on Aug 11. Pressed as to whether he was referring to recruitment at a club showing a profit on summer dealing he replied: "Everything - I'm really anxious".

Newcastle United announced they had completed the signing of Japan forward Yoshinori Muto from Bundesliga club Mainz after he was granted a work permit on Thursday.

And Rondon's £16.5million release clause in his contract at The Hawthorns has reportedly expired.

Less than 24 hours after manager Rafa Benitez had said "things are not going well off the pitch and you can see a reflection of that on the pitch" in the wake of a 4-0 friendly defeat to Braga, the Magpies have acted by bringing in Muto.
