Latest news regarding this reported Brentford transfer target from the January window emerges

Brentford-linked Ryan Fraser currently has no future with current club Newcastle United. The winger is currently training with the club’s Under-21s after falling out of favour over recent times.

The Bees were said to be interested in the Scotland international earlier this winter along with fellow Premier League side Southampton, as reported by The Telegraph. However, the 29-year-old ended up staying put beyond the deadline of the January transfer.

Fraser, who joined the Toon Army back in 2020, has made 59 appearances for the North East outfit in all competitions to date and has found the net three times. He remains under contract until the summer of 2025 but has seen his game time significantly dry up.

Eddie Howe has provided this update on his future, as per NewcastleWorld: “Ryan is training with the Under-21s. I made the decision to concentrate on the players that are committed to Newcastle. For the benefit of the group, I’ve made that call.

Asked if he saw a future for the player on Tyneside, he said: “I think that’s a difficult one for me to answer because I’d never put a firm decision on that because life and football can change quickly. But I’d say at the moment, no he doesn’t.”

Brentford are well stocked up on options in Fraser’s position so time will tell whether they make a move for him in the future. The door has swung open for another club to sign to land the player in the next window with him not in Newcastle’s plans right now.
