The left-back became Steve Bruce’s third signing of a busy week – fifth of the summer as a whole – following on from Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser’s confirmation on Monday. The Magpies brought in free transfers Jeff Hendrick and Mark Gillespie earlier in the window.

He said: “HOWAY THE LADS ! Delighted to have signed with this great football club ready to go.”
