He said: “The coaches have been excellent with me so far and everyone’s been helping me so much, so I can’t wait to get started. 

“Hopefully I can make an impact. The club have put a lot of belief in me and I want to work my hardest and do my best for the team and the club.

“My dad is made up too – he speaks very highly of the club, its fan base and the lovely stadium. 

“When the call came through that I was going to sign, he was so excited and so are the whole family. 

“To come to a club like Newcastle is fantastic and I’m over the moon.”

Ferguson senior is now Everton assistant boss after spending ten years in all at Goodison Park as a player, either side of his two years at St James’ Park.

The ex-Scotland star’s son went on trial with Newcastle towards the end of last season.
