Steve Bruce is excited by the ‘wonderful chemistry’ of his new Newcastle United signings Ryan Fraser and Callum Wilson.

Fraser, a 26-year-old Scotland international, has signed a five-year deal at St James’s Park.

The free agent joins from AFC Bournemouth along with striker Wilson, who confirmed his £20million move earlier today.

And Bruce is looking forward to the pair striking up a similar partnership to the one they enjoyed on the south coast.

Bruce said: "I'm delighted to bring Ryan to Newcastle United.

"We have held off big competition to get his signature and that says a lot about what this club has to offer.

"His ability and his contributions on the pitch speak for themselves and I'm looking forward to seeing him getting to work in a Newcastle shirt.

"He has wonderful chemistry on the pitch with Callum Wilson, which excites me, and I hope it excites our supporters ahead of the new season."

Fraser added: "I'm absolutely buzzing for it - I came down to see the place the other day and it was all just good things; the manager, the place, the fans, the messages I've been getting.

"It was just a no-brainer, really, to play in such a big stadium with such passionate fans, and being back up in the north again is big as well.

"So I'm really looking forward to it and I just cant wait to show everyone what I can do, help the team and help us get back to where we belong."
