Newcastle all-but agree to sign Everton’s Anthony Gordon for £40m – plus £5m in add-ons – with a medical tomorrow after the midfielder missed days of training to force through a deal
Newcastle have agreed a deal of £40million plus add-ons for Everton forward Anthony Gordon and the player is now due on Tyneside for a medical.
The 21-year-old will travel to the North-East to complete his move after a week of talks between the clubs. The deal could total £45m if performance clauses are met in the future.
Newcastle boss Eddie Howe had identified Gordon as his top January target and the club’s owners are now on the verge of landing their man.
Gordon’s imminent move comes after he forced through a move to St James’ Park after telling the club he had no intention of returning to training at Finch Farm – missing a total of three days, the first of which was planned.
The Everton youth product has not started a game for the Toffees since the mid-season World Cup break after a dip in form followed his starring role in last season’s Premier League survival bid under Frank Lampard.
