Newcastle United and Everton have reached an agreement for the transfer of Anthony Gordon, with a deal that could be worth £45m.

The 21-year-old forward returned to Everton's training headquarters on Friday after being absent earlier in the week, and it is expected that the move to Newcastle will be completed before Tuesday's transfer deadline.

The initial fee for Gordon is believed to be £40m, with the possibility of an additional £5m in add-ons.

Chelsea had previously shown interest in Gordon during the summer, with Everton reportedly asking for £60m.

The Merseyside club plans to use a portion of the transfer fee to fund the hiring of new manager Sean Dyche. Gordon, who has been with Everton since 2012, has scored 7 goals in 65 games since making his debut in 2020.

Newcastle has also announced that defender Kieran Trippier has signed a new contract with the club, keeping him at St James' Park until 2025.
