Anthony Gordon Completes a £45 million Move to Newcastle.

England Under-21 international Anthony Gordon has completed a £45 million move to Newcastle United from Everton.

The 21-year-old winger, who joined the Toffees academy when he was just 11 years old, handed in a transfer request to force the move to St James’ Park.

The transfer fee is an initial £40m plus an additional £5m in add-ons, making Gordon the Magpies’ second-most expensive signing ever – behind only Alexander Isak’s £63m transfer last summer.

Gordon has put pen to paper on a long-term contract with the third-placed Premier League side, becoming Eddie Howe’s first signing of the January transfer window.

The move is a significant blow to Everton, who is currently in the relegation zone and managerless.

However, they are expected to announce Sean Dyche as their new boss immediately. Gordon’s departure is further exacerbated by his farewell post on social media, in which he urged Everton fans to “stick by the team.”

Gordon has made 78 appearances for the Toffees since making his Premier League debut in January 2020.
Newcastle will be hoping that Gordon can add some much-needed attacking impetus for the second half of the season as they look to break into the Champions League places.

Gordon is an exciting prospect who could be an excellent addition to the Magpies.

It remains to be seen how Gordon will adjust to life in the Premier League, but there is no doubt that Newcastle has made a great signing and could reap the benefits of their investment in the future.

Newcastle, who are currently third in the Premier League, will hope Gordon can help them to a solid finish for the season.

Newcastle’s next game is the second leg semi-finals of the Carabao Cup against Southampton on Tuesday, January 31st, 2023, with the Magpies currently leading 1-0 from the first leg.
