Ferguson is the son of former Newcastle and Everton forward Duncan Ferguson and joined the club’s academy from Tranmere Rovers in 2021. Shortly after The Magpies confirmed the youngster’s loan exit, he made his competitive senior debut at Forfar in the Scottish fourth tier as he came on for the second half in the club’s 2-1 defeat at home to Bonnyrigg.
