Newcastle sign duo from Bournemouth
Newcastle United have today completed the signings of Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser from Bournemouth, following the south club’s relegation from the Premier League.
England international Wilson has signed a four-year deal on Tyneside following his £20 million move, whilst Fraser arrives on a free transfer, signing a deal for five years.
Callum Wilson scored 35 goals in 113 Premier League appearances during the Cherries’ four-year stay in the top flight, earning four caps for the England national tean.
Ryan Fraser caused controversy during lockdown when he told Bournemouth he wanted to leave over the summer with 10 games still to play. He did not play again for Eddie Howe’s side.
Newcastle fans were wanting Steve Bruce to land a striker this summer as Joelinton scored just twice in 35 Premier League games following his club record move last summer.
Winger Fraser has been particularly good at winning penalties during his time in the Premier League and is a nifty winger.
This pair join Mark Gillespir and Jeff Hendrick to join the Magpies this summer.
Newcastle are away to West Ham United this Saturday in their opening game of the 2020-21 Premier League season
