News. Alfie Harrison signs for Newcastle United

01 Feb 24

Midfielder Alfie Harrison has joined Newcastle United until the summer of 2026, signing for an undisclosed fee from Manchester City, subject to the necessary approvals

The 18-year-old has built a reputation as a technically gifted player since joining City's Academy aged nine and will initially link up with Newcastle's Professional Development Phase (PDP).

An impressive 2022/23 saw Harrison help City's youngsters to the Under-18s Premier League title and he has continued that form this season with eight goals and four assists to his name.

On joining the Academy, Harrison said: "The size of the club and what it has got going for it is massive for me. It's got a huge, passionate fanbase and I'm looking to really push on with my career now.

"If I was a kid now, looking at me signing for Newcastle United, it's what dreams are made of. I'm really looking forward to what is coming and how I can progress in the coming years.

"I'm an effective player who can add goals and assists. I really like to create stuff but, on the other side, I'd also say I'm a very passionate player who always wants to win."

Academy Director Steve Harper added: "We are delighted to secure Alfie's signature. His hunger to represent Newcastle United and continue his development here was obvious from the outset.

"He's a passionate, talented player who we are really looking forward to welcoming to the club and ultimately seeing in a black and white shirt.

"Alfie's signing is part of a strategic move to make our PDP group younger, particularly the Under-21s, and I would like to thank the board and everybody involved at the club in making this move happen."
