Newcastle signing Tozer backed for big success

Swindon Town caretaker manager David Byrne is backing Ben Tozer to be a big success at Newcastle United.

The 17-year-old defender was due to hold talks and have a medical with the Magpies on Tuesday after the clubs agreed a fee.

"Ben is a laid back character and sometimes that doesn't help him when he plays, but I knew I had a gem all along," Byrne told the club website.

"There is no doubt in my mind that Tozer will make it in the Premiership."

Byrne added: "He is one of the best youngsters I have ever worked with because he listens and does exactly what you want him to do on the pitch."
