Newcastle sign former U.S. Under-20 Scott
Newcastle have signed former United States Under-20 midfielder Kyle Scott, the club announced on Monday.
Scott, 21, had spent the past 12 years under contract at Chelsea, making his first-team Blues debut in February of 2018. He has been capped by England, the Republic of Ireland and the U.S. in the youth ranks.
"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," Scott said in a statement on the club's website.
"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."
Scott spent last season on loan with Dutch club Telstar where he made 14 appearances.
Newcastle also announced the signing of 20-year-old goalkeeper Jake Turner from Bolton.
Both players could debut with the under-23s' in a friendly against Rotherham.
