Career[edit]

Aberdeen[edit]

He signed for Aberdeen in May 2010, aged 16. He made his debut for the first team against Heart of Midlothian in October 2010.[3] Fraser made a significant impression in the Aberdeen first team during the early part of the 2012–13 Scottish Premier League season, winning the Young Player of the Month award for September and October 2012.[4] Aberdeen manager Craig Brown expressed concerns at this time that opposing teams were targeting Fraser with tough tackling.[4] Fraser rejected a contract extension with Aberdeen on 7 December 2012.[5]

Bournemouth[edit]

Fraser signed a three-year contract with Football League One club Bournemouth on 18 January 2013.[6] Bournemouth paid Aberdeen a transfer fee of £400,000 to complete the deal.[6] During his first season, Fraser helped Bournemouth gain promotion to the Championship.

Fraser scored his first Premier League goal on 4 December 2016, in a 4–3 win against Liverpool.[7] He entered the game as a second-half substitute, when Bournemouth trailed 2–0.[7] Fraser won a penalty kick for the first Bournemouth goal, scored the second and provided an assist for the third goal.[7]

Ipswich (loan)[edit]

On 26 June 2015, Fraser signed a season-long loan deal with Ipswich Town.[citation needed]

International[edit]

Fraser was called up to the senior Scotland squad in March 2017.[8]
