After striking Callum Wilson deal, Newcastle now expected to sign Ryan Fraser


Word emerging from the media this evening suggests that Newcastle United are on the verge of signing free agent winger Ryan Fraser.

Newcastle making moves

The last 48 hours have seen Newcastle take centre stage in the transfer market rumour mill.

Amid a quiet summer to this point, a whole host of reports have begun to emerge, suggesting that the Mapgies are finally ready to reinforce Steve Bruce’s squad.

First, a number of reliable sources confirmed yesterday afternoon that the Geordie outfit had seen an offer accepted for highly-regarded Norwich City defender Jamal Lewis:

This came despite prior claims in the Italian media on Friday that an agreement was close to being found for Sassuolo star Rogerio, also a left-back.

The club’s backline, however, is far from the only area which Newcastle are evidently keen to strengthen ahead of the Premier League getting back underway next weekend.

Early on Sunday, word was forthcoming that the Magpies had positioned themselves as favourites in the race for Bournemouth star Callum Wilson.

This was swiftly followed by a further update just hours later, confirming that a deal had been reached with the Cherries, with a transfer now appearing imminent:

Fraser incoming

And, as outlined above, in yet another boost for the Newcastle faithful, one of Wilson’s former teammates looks set to be lining out alongside the hitman at St. James’ Park next season.

As revealed by Keith Downie of Sky Sports, Ryan Fraser, a free agent following the expiration of his Bournemouth contract this summer, has agreed to a deal with Steve Bruce’s men:

The Magpies striking a deal for Wilson, meanwhile, is said to have proven key in Fraser’s decision to take his talents to Tyneside:
