Newcastle United look set to announce yet another signing today following the £20m arrival of Callum Wilson.
As reported by Sky Sports’ Keith Downie, Ryan Fraser has now passed his medical on Tyneside and could even be announced as a Newcastle player later today.
On the flip side, it sounds like a loan move for Arsenal’s Rob Holding is now ‘on hold’, with Downie revealing that the Gunners are weighing up whether or not to bring in a replacement before they allow him to leave.
Here’s update on both from Sky Sports’ North-East correspondent:
In all honesty, we are in no major rush for another centre-back while we still have Schar and Lejeune on our books
The Swiss star isn’t yet fit and the Frenchman appears to be way down the pecking order, but we too may have to move one of the two on before Holding is able to arrive on loan?
As for Fraser, he promises to be a brilliant signing on a free and someone who could combine well with Wilson if their stunning form across 2018/19 is anything to go by.
