Scotland international winger Ryan Fraser signed a five-year deal at St. James' Park in the summer of 2020
Fraser joined the Magpies after leaving AFC Bournemouth, and wasted no time in making an impact in black and white, scoring the winner on his debut against Blackburn Rovers in the Carabao Cup.
In joining Newcastle, Fraser once again teamed up with former Cherries teammate Callum Wilson, with the England striker also joining the Magpies in the same week.
Born in Aberdeen, Fraser began his career with his hometown side in the Scottish top division, signing professional terms in summer 2010 and making his first team debut as a 16-year-old.
After catching the eye in the opening months of the 2012/13 campaign, Fraser secured a switch to AFC Bournemouth and he would help his new club to climb from League One to the Premier League in the space of just two-and-a-half seasons.
A loan spell at Ipswich Town followed before Fraser returned to the South Coast to become an integral part of Eddie Howe's side, registering 14 Premier League assists during the 2018/19 season - second only to Chelsea's Eden Hazard.
After 208 appearances for the club, Fraser's contract at the Vitality Stadium expired in June 2020.
