Ryan Fraser has agreed a deal to join Newcastle and is set to undergo a medical on Monday.
The Scotland international has been a free agent since his Bournemouth contract ended in June, when he opted against signing an extension to play at the Vitality Stadium upon the restart of the Premier League season.
Fraser has been linked with a move to West Ham and Crystal Palace but after having face-to-face discussions with Steve Bruce on Friday, he has decided his future lies on Tyneside.
The 26-year-old will undergo a Newcastle medical on the same day as Callum Wilson, who landed in Newcastle on Sunday and is set to join the club in a £20m deal.
Fraser was keen to know if Newcastle had landed his friend and former team-mate before making his final decision as he wanted to ensure they could rekindle their partnership at St James’ Park.
Wilson was subject to a bidding war between Aston Villa and Newcastle over the weekend, with Villa withdrawing their £21m bid for the 28-year-old striker after hearing of his preference to move to Tyneside.
