Newcastle sign ex-Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser

Newcastle United have completed the signing of Ryan Fraser on a free transfer. 

The 26-year old was a free agent after Bournemouth allowed his contract to expired in June.

Fraser is Newcastle's second signing of the day, following the £20million (€22.3m) capture of his former Bournemouth teammate Callum Wilson.

Steve Bruce has already plundered the free agent market ahead of the new season, with Jeff Hendrick signing a 4-year contract at St. James's Park.

"I'm absolutely buzzing for it," Fraser told NUFC.co.uk, "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.

"So I'm really looking forward to it and I just cant wait to show everyone what I can do, help the team and help us get back to where we belong."

When on-form, Fraser can terrorise defences. In the 2018-19 Premier League season, only Eden Hazard (15) outdid the diminutive winger for assists (Fraser provided 14 that season for the Cherries).

He's unlikely to be Steve Bruce's final piece of business.

Having rebuffed interest from Liverpool, Norwich City look poised to sell Northern Ireland full-back Jamal Lewis to Newcastle for £13.5million (€15m).

Bruce said of his latest acquisition, "We have held off 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 getting 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."
