Newcastle United man set for Southampton loan switch, says Keith Downie

Southampton are set to sign Ryan Fraser on a season-long loan deal from Newcastle United, reports Sky Sports’ Keith Downie.

Fraser, 29, joined Newcastle United from Bournemouth in 2020, but the Magpies’ transfer business over the last two summers now has seen the Scot fall down the pecking order.

He featured just eight times in the Premier League last time round and is yet to feature this season, and now it looks like he’s set for a temporary exit from the club.

Sky Sports reporter Downie has revealed on Twitter this morning that Fraser is set to join Russell Martin’s Southampton on a season-long loan deal, after training away from the Newcastle first-team for a prolonged period of time.

Downie tweeted:

Southampton are also reportedly closing in on the loan signing of Mason Holgate from Everton, with the Saints having recently signed Flynn Downes on loan from West Ham too.

A good signing?

Definitely. Fraser is a player with bags of experience in the Premier League and he’s tried and tested in the Championship too, so for Martin, this looks like a very good signing indeed.

Fraser is also a player who can play in numerous positions; he can operate on either flank, and in more attacking or even defensive roles too, so he’ll bring a huge amount of versatility to the side.

Southampton look like they’re enjoying a strong finish to the summer transfer window. It’s been tough at times for them, with the Romeo Lavia saga having dragged on, but they’re putting in the work now and Martin will surely be pleased.

The Saints return to action at home against QPR this weekend, with kick off at 3pm tomorrow.
