Newcastle have reportedly agreed terms with Ryan Fraser and are hoping to persuade Callum Wilson to join him at the club.

Former Bournemouth winger Fraser is available on a free transfer after leaving the Vitality Stadium in June at the end of his contract.

The Scotland international supposedly held talks with Crystal Palace, while West Ham were also linked with him, but the Magpies look to have won the race for his signature.

Fraser helped Bournemouth earn promotion from League One in his first season at the club in 2013, before winning promotion to the Premier League with them two years later.

After a brilliant campaign the season before last, he was linked with big money moves to Tottenham and Arsenal, but last season he was not at his best.

But according to talkSPORT , Fraser has agreed terms with Newcastle, who now look set to snap him up for nothing.

The 26-year-old was said to be holding out to see what other offers would come in but is now happy to move to Tyneside, where he lives closer to his family in Aberdeen.

And Toon boss Steve Bruce is also looking into the prospect of reunited Fraser with Cherries striker Wilson.

It is claimed that Newcastle have offered former Bournemouth man Matt Ritchie plus cash in a bid to sign the England international.

But they face stiff competition from Tottenham and Aston Villa for the 28-year-old, who could be available for a cut-price fee.

Bruce will be hoping that the acquisition of Fraser could possibly tempt Wilson into joining him at St James’ Park.

Meanwhile, Newcastle also remain in talks with Arsenal over a loan deal for centre-back Rob Holding.

Holding would boost Bruce's centre-back options going into the new Premier League season, which starts at West Ham on September 12.

Fans have so far been frustrated at the club’s efforts to sign players this summer, with no new faces of note arriving yet.
