Magpies sign Shrewsbury youngster Travis Hernes
Newcastle United have recruited Shrewsbury Town youngster Travis Hernes to the club's Little Benton Academy.
The 17-year-old central midfielder has started twice for Shrewsbury in League One this season, having signed his first professional deal with the Shrews last month.
Born in Heradsbygda, Norway, he has represented his country at under-17 level. A product of Shrewsbury's Academy, Travis made his senior debut in the EFL Trophy last season and marked the occasion with a goal against Wolves' under-21 team.
