Gordon joins Newcastle for £45m after handing in Everton transfer request

Newcastle have completed the £45m transfer of winger Anthony Gordon from Everton, making him the club's second most expensive signing.

Everton said in a brief 64-word statement that they sanctioned the deal for Gordon, who joined Everton aged 11, to move to the Magpies after he handed in a transfer request.

Gordon has signed a long-term contract at Newcastle after they agreed to pay an initial £40m plus add-ons that could see the deal rise to £45m, with the £63m paid for Alexander Isak last summer remaining their club-record transfer.

Gordon, who made his Premier League debut for Everton in January 2020, becomes Eddie Howe's first signing of this January transfer window as the third-placed Magpies bolster their attacking options for the second half of the season.

Managerless Everton, who are expected to announce Sean Dyche as their new boss, are in the Premier League relegation zone, level on points with bottom side Southampton.
