Fraser Foster Joins Celtic On Season Long Loan Deal

Newcastle United have confirmed that goalkeeper Fraser Forster has today joined Celtic on a season long loan deal.

Fraser Forster – joins Celtic on loan
Forster had a medical at the club yesterday,  and it seems he passed it,  so he is off again on a season long loan deal, after doing so very well last season at Norwich City.

Fraser, 22, and standing 6’7″ tall, made 42  appearances for Norwich last season, after appearing four times at Bristol Rovers before that.

Fraser has yet to make his debut for Newcastle, but is expected to start for Celtic this season at Parkhead.

We wish Fraser all the best this season.

    Good luck and a good team to get experience with, hopefully.

    Hope we have a clause in the contract allowing him back if we have and serious injuries!

    Is that not an unwritten rule in loan deals anyway?

    I hope it is in his contract that he gets sufficient games and does not sit on the bench.

    I suppose there is no truth in them also trying to get Given there on loan then??

    That would be disastrous for young Fraser.

    i cant see city letting given go even if he is upset, they said they want 2 keepers. i dont think you can recall a player if there is a loan fee involved but other than that i think its ok.

    Sky reported the other day that Mancini will not stand in Given’s way if he wants to go!!!!!!

    I also read they had promised to increase his salary if he sat on the bench?!?!
