Scotland international winger Ryan Fraser has signed for Newcastle United.

The 26-year-old has signed a five-year deal and joins the club after leaving AFC Bournemouth in June.

Fraser is the second former Bournemouth player to sign for the Magpies today; the club announced earlier that it had signed Callum Wilson.

He was born in Aberdeen and began his career with his hometown side, signing professional terms in summer 2010 and made his first-team debut at the age of 16

He moved to bournemouth during the 2012/13 season and helped the club climb from League One to the Premier League. He also spent time on loan to Ipswich Town.

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.

He added that he wanted to get the Magpies “back where we belong”.

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.

Steve Bruce, head coach, Newcastle United
Bruce added that he was “delighted” with the signing.
