Newcastle complete Anderson and Minteh sales for combined £65m

Newcastle have completed the sales of Elliot Anderson to Nottingham Forest for £35m, plus Yankuba Minteh to Brighton for a further £30m.

Eddie Howe's Magpies needed to close the Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSR) gap for when the financial accounting period ended on June 30, so were under pressure to get the sales done quickly.

Academy product Anderson joins Nuno Espirito Santo's Forest having made 55 first-team appearances for Newcastle, including 44 Premier League outings.

Meanwhile, Minteh moves to Brighton having impressed on loan at Arne Slot's Feyenoord last season, where he scored 10 times in 27 Eredivisie games.
