Newcastle Reach Agreement With Everton For Anthony Gordon – Report



Sky Sports is now reporting that Newcastle have reached an agreement with Everton for Anthony Gordon. Pete Graves is reporting the fee is £40m plus £5m in add-ons. Keith Downie has also taken to Twitter with the following:

Fee now agreed for Anthony Gordon to move to Newcastle. £45m total agreement. The forward is due on Tyneside for his medical in the next 24 hours.

Eddie Howe seems to have captured his top winter target but at a heavy price. Newcastle were not expected to make a signing of this magnitude unless one of their top targets became available.

Gordon’s name came out of the blue with many expecting a midfielder to be the top priority. The England U21 international was only briefly linked in the summer before Chelsea made a big push to land him.

This appears to be an Eddie Howe signing. Gordon fits the profile as a versatile attacker who is more than willing to do arduous work off the ball. At just 21, he has room to grow under the tutelage of Howe.

Gordon’s pending arrival could open the door for Ryan Fraser’s exit. The 28-year-old is keen on more playing time and has wanted to leave since the summer. Gordon will also provide significant competition on either flank to Allan Saint-Maximin, Joelinton, Miguel Almiron, and Jacob Murphy.

There are also reports that Newcastle are still tracking West Ham right-back Harrison Ashby. The clubs are currently apart in their valuations with the 21-year-old in the final 6 months of his contract.

    Unrelated question….

    If we drop out of the European places by the end of the season and get beat off Manure in the cup final, but Manure secure a top 4 finish….do we get a spot in Europe for being finalists?

    We need to trust in the recruitment team, haven’t let us down thus far….

    Still don’t think this will be our only signing

    Fingers crossed

    Unfortunately not. If the winners of the cup already have qualified for european competition, the place goes to the next highest in the league.

    I think beaten finalist is only a European place for a beaten FA cup finalist where the winner already finishes in a European position. I don’t think the same applies to the League Cup.

    In any case, winning the league cup affords a Europa League Conference place which is usually also granted to a side who finishes 7th (provided the FA Cup is won by a team in the top 6) so at the very least we should be aiming for Europa League via our league finish which top 6 is usually good enough for.

    Can’t see Maddison also coming this window, probably one for the summer. I’d love to be surprised though and he’s done before the window is over.

    Young Gordon would be a tremendous signing, he is very competitive and fast, plays right on the edge, and very flexible and versatile, he is most definitely an Eddie Howe type of player, and will add great strength and quality to the squad,

    This is an exciting move. Realistically, it’s just exciting to see these numbers from Newcastle. £60m for Isak, £45m for Gordon, £35m for Botman, £35m for Bruno. This is what’s necessary to build a sustained winner. Hopefully, Ashworth can start performing magic similar to his success at Brighton, but for now, this is what we need. The best part is that we’re paying for high-quality, young players.

    Finally things are starting to good in terms of depth for attacking options. Assuming Gordon takes Murphys spot for game involvement.

    ASM, Miggy, Wilson, Isak and now Gordon. Can add Joelinton into that mix as well as he’s been playing wide left more lately. So that’s potentially 6 quality players now for 3 attacking roles. Just what we need!

    If story is accurate and we sign Gordon it’s going to make the game a lot more interesting on April 25th.

    Still feels a bit steep that fee but trust in Howe and co. He’s certainly got a lot of potential. If he signs does that change Howe’s stance on Anderson? A championship loan would be good for him but again we don’t have the biggest of squads so there’s a risk there.

    Will be interesting to see if one more comes in. Just think we need a young striker, a bit in the Joao Pedro mould, can play anywhere across the front 3. Even maybe one on loan just as a bit of additional cover.

    Ashby seems like it could happen in the summer but Fresneda is heavily linked.

    With Ritchie fit, imagine we’ll keep him and the likes of Dummett until the summer. Fraser however can go.

    lot of speculation on the fee. nobody knows how it is made up. be assured if we have to pay the bonuses then we will have done well and it will be money well spent.

    our shithousery is we have bought him just to spur on leicester to part with Maddison 🙂

    Not to mention it also helps our midfield dilemma a bit as Joelinton is now more free to return to the midfield 3. As we’ll have ASM, Miggy, Gordon, Murphy and of course Isak who can now play wide attack.

    With Shelvey likely to return next month too, then Bruno, Longstaff, Willock, Joelinton and Shelvey gives us good midfield options too. Would still be nice to see one midfield option come in though.

    With Anthony Gordon incoming, will we move Joe back into DM, giving Bruno a bit more leeway?

    My view is, we’ve now got Gordon, ASM, Miggy, Murphy, Wilson and Isak (2 x left, 2 x right & 2 x middle) for our front 3 positions.

    Joelinton, must become part of “engine room”?

    Gordon alone is decent business. Not so bothered about a full back. That can wait until the summer.
    A players of Maddison’s calibre before Feb would be brilliant. I would sell Max as part payment for a player like Maddison but only sell if terms agreed.
    It is clear that Gordon us ahead of max in pecking order. Writing is on the wall. He may go now or the summer.

    Great minds and all that!

    Think Joe’s best work for us is when he’s battling in the middle, so hope we do see him play there more often. Then begs the question of who’s spot he takes out of Bruno, Longstaff and Willock though?

    Good problems to have 🙂

    I reckon Flash Gordon could become a great midfielder, playing in a three, he runs, tackles and passes as well as other traits of a typical winger.

    I see him as a modern day Rob Lee, a winger who slowly transforms himself into more of an attacking creative midfielder.

    You heard it here first, he could be the new maddison…

    It used to be Joe Willock over Longstaff, now I think its firmly Longstaff over Willock if either of them are to make way for any new signings or returning players.

    Longstaff does am incredible amount for the team unfortunately he cant score in a brothel which is all people take notice of.

    His current haircut is pretty smart, based on videos shown by SSN of his training.

    Shortish and blonde, fit in with Bruno and Joe 😉

    In a year or two.

    Maddison seems to be picking up far too many injuries, which we simply cannot carry. Especially when he demands huge wages.

    Dont think we will sign many midfielders over 26.

    Longstaff contributes more than Willock. Although he cannot score he is a good def midfielder.
    A Maddison type would replace Willock
