(Reuters) - U.S. hedge fund King Street Capital Management LP has proposed new independent directors at Japan's Toshiba Corp, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday, citing people familiar with the matter.

King Street's proposal is the first sign of dissatisfaction among the foreign funds that bought into Toshiba last year, the Journal reported.

The U.S. hedge fund is the third largest shareholder in Toshiba, with a 5.23 percent stake, according to Thomson Reuters data.

King Street did not immediately respond to a request for comment while Toshiba declined to comment.
