Alan Nixon of the Sun is reporting that Newcastle have won the race to sign young former Bolton goalkeeper Jake Turner. Turner is a free agent after he did not renew his contract with the Wanderers who are in acomplete mess at the moment.
Newcastle. Snapping up young keeper Jake Turner. Leaving Bolton. Top prospect year or so back. Had injury. Shrewd one.

Jake Turner was a top prospect who was being sought by Everton and Manchester United in 2018. At one point, Bolton even put a £4m when he was just 18 and yet to make any first-team appearances. He has been capped for England at the U19 level.
His star has waned a bit over the past year but hopefully, Newcastle can turn him into a top goalkeeper. This is a very good signing for Newcastle and Turner could be an exciting one for the future.
