Harrison Ashby

Position:
Defender
Date signed:
31st January 2023

Scottish under-21 international defender who signed for Newcastle United from West Ham in the January 2023 transfer window.

The young defender was born in Milton Keyes but has represented Scotland at under-21 level and made seven senior competitive appearances for the Hammers across the Premier League and domestic and European cup competitions.

The Magpies held a long-standing interest in the right-back, whose father, Barry, played for Brentford, Watford and Gillingham during a near 20-year career in the Football League.

Head coach Eddie Howe said: "Harrison is a very talented young player with a lot of potential so we are delighted to sign him.

"He has very good attributes so we are looking forward to working with him in this exciting new chapter of his career."

Ashby, who has signed a long-term contract, added: "I could not be happier. I can't get the smile off my face and it's a proud day for me and my family.

"I wouldn't be here today without West Ham, so I thank all the coaches that I had from growing up to now, but I'm delighted to be here."

Ashby joined Swansea City on loan for the 2023/24 season.
