Ryan Fraser Signs For Newcastle United Till 2025

Newcastle has completed their second signing in Ryan Fraser as he penned a 5-year deal with the Magpies, after signing Callum Wilson on Monday. 

His signing was announced late on Monday evening after he signed the paper. 

Fraser and Wilson are set to be joined by Norwich's Jamal Lewis, with the left-back expected to undergo a medical at the club on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old was left out of Northern Ireland's squad to face Norway at Windsor Park on Monday night and will make his way to Tyneside to finalize his move in a deal worth £15m.

He made 229 appearances during his six-and-a-half-year stay at the Vitality Stadium - scoring 30 goals for the club in that time.

Scotland international Fraser has been a free agent since his Bournemouth contract ended in June when he opted against signing an extension to play at the Vitality Stadium upon the restart of the Premier League season.

In a statement, Fraser said: "I'm absolutely buzzing for it - I came down to see the place the other day and it was all just good things; the manager, the place, the fans, the messages I've been getting.

"It was just a no-brainer, really, to play in such a big stadium with such passionate fans, and being back up in the north again is big as well."

Also, part of the reason Fraser signed for the Magpies was that it makes him closer to his family.

According to Sky Sports News on Wednesday, Newcastle had held initial talks with Fraser but were still due to agree on personal terms, with the winger keen on moving to the North East to be closer to his family in Aberdeen.

Magpies' boss Steve Bruce added: "I'm delighted to bring Ryan to Newcastle United. We have held off the big competition to get his signature and that says a lot about what this club has to offer.

"His ability and his contributions on the pitch speak for themselves and I'm looking forward to seeing him get to work in a Newcastle shirt.

"He has wonderful chemistry on the pitch with Callum Wilson, which excites me, and I hope it excites our supporters ahead of the new season."
