Midfielder Kyle Scott joins after leaving Chelsea where the 21-year-old has spent the last 12 years.
This is what Scott says about joining the Magpies:
“I’m really excited. Newcastle is a massive club with massive history, but for young kids there is an opportunity – you see that with (Sean) Longstaff and what he did last year, and it’s a good opportunity for me.
“Newcastle are in the Premier League, and a massive club. You look at the kind of players that have come through here and how much opportunity they have got, and I feel like at this place they do give it as long as you’re working hard and playing well.”
Jake Turner, a goalkeeper, joins after leaving Bolton this summer. The 20-year-old was a top prospect a few years ago who drew interest from Manchester United.
This is what he has said about joining the club:
“It’s excellent for me, and I can’t wait to get started. Stepping up to a Premier League club is massive.
“We’ll see where I progress – playing in the Premier League is a dream – so we’ll see what happens.
“It’s a massive club, and I can’t wait to get going here.”
This is excellent news as we had expected both to be announced soon. We hope they are excellent additions to the U23’s where they will begin their Newcastle careers.
