It was widely reported that the England international will wear the legendary number 9 jersey following his arrival from Bournemouth, but that is no longer the case as Newcastle aren’t keen to strip Joelinton of his jersey number.
Japanese striker Muto was the Magpies’ former number 13, but he has been told to leave, and the latest decision
