1:26 Rafa Benitez I have no idea over Newcastle's transfers

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".

The club announced that Muto has signed an initial four-year contract at St James' Park.

However, the 26-year-old will have to miss Saturday's friendly with Augsburg while he waits to be granted a visa. "We were following him for quite a while", Benitez said.

Benitez has made five summer signings, with Japan striker Yoshinori Muto joining from Bundesliga club Mainz this week for a fee in the region of £10million.

Pompeo says Iran sanctions will be enforced
Central bank governor Abdolnaser Hemmati said the plan reflected Iran's self-confidence in the face of the looming USA sanctions. Protests broke out on Sunday for a sixth night in Iranian cities, including Kazeroon in the south, according to social media.

It is another disappointment for Newcastle, though thhey have already signed Ki Sung-yueng, Yishinori Mutō, Fabian Schar, and retained Chelsea's Kenedy for another loan, this time to last the whole season.

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

"Everyone knows that we can't compete against Man City or Man United, but we can do things in the right way". It's concerning with the season 10 days away.

"At the moment we have to make sure we have to improve the squad and see after that".

When asked what he was referring to in terms of off-pitch matters, he said: "Everything".

"You're a very courageous man if you go out and criticise the owners, which to be fair is what he is doing", said Allardyce. He gave the same response when asked if there was money to spend.

The Sports Direct boss has shown himself to be unwilling to fund Newcastle properly to put the club in a position to push up the Premier League table, and this latest disagreement with Benitez is simply the latest in a long line of financial disagreements with managers.

Newcastle begin their league campaign by hosting Tottenham at St James' Park on August 11.
