Newcastle ace Ryan Fraser ‘frozen out’ by Eddie Howe as tensions rise once again
Newcastle ace Ryan Fraser has been reportedly frozen out by Eddie Howe as tensions rise again between the pair.
Fraser, 28, is said to be training with the Toon's U21 side following his latest spat with Howe, who he played under at Bournemouth. And the Scottish winger is likely to be sold in the summer, according to the Daily Mail.
Fraser's been in the cold since his last appearance for the Magpies in October, and it's due to be the final time he pulls on a Newcastle shirt after falling foul of Howe. Newcastle's hierarchy have sided with their manager in the row and believe Fraser will be better off leaving the club, while he has no qualms about the decision as he wants more playing time, the report added.

But it's not the first time Fraser and Howe have bumped heads. They fell out when they were both at the Cherries in 2020, amid the club's relegation.
Fraser's loyalty was questioned when he opted to join Newcastle instead of sticking it out with the Cherries in the 2019/20 season. And Howe chose not to play Fraser in the team's last two games of the campaign, although he expressed regret over the way the attacker's eight-year spell on the South Coast was ending.
Should Eddie Howe give Ryan Fraser another chance? Let us know in the comments section
Fraser's omission from the first team means he'll miss the chance to feature in Newcastle's Carabao Cup final against Manchester United on Saturday. It will be the first time the Magpies play at the new Wembley stadium, but Fraser won't be there to witness the historical moment.
But Fraser won't be the only Toon star to miss the final, although his team-mate Nick Pope's absence is self-inflicted after the red card he picked up against Liverpool.
Pope was sent off after a handball offence in the Premier League clash, however, a top former referee thinks the keeper's ban should be delayed so he can feature in the tournament's curtain closer.
