Newcastle United have completed the signing of Jake Turner, who had been available as a free agent following his release by Bolton.

Turner, who had progressed through the Wanderers academy, was an unused substitute on 31 appearances during his time at the University of Bolton Stadium but never actually made his senior debut for the club.

Loan spells at Stalybridge Celtic, Frickley Athletic and Darlington over the past two years saw him linked with moves to clubs such as Manchester United, but it is the Magpies who have secured the signature of the 20-year-old England youth international.

Speaking to nufc.co.uk about his move to St James' Park, Turner said: "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."
