Newcastle United are close to signing Everton's Anthony Gordon after the clubs agreed a deal that could eventually be worth £45m.

Gordon was back at Everton's Finch Farm training headquarters on Friday after being absent this week.

It now seems certain the formalities of the 21-year-old forward's move to Tyneside will be completed well before Tuesday's transfer deadline.

The initial fee is understood to be £40m, rising to £45m with add-ons.

Midfielder Gordon was a target for Chelsea in the summer, with Everton reportedly demanding £60m, but the Merseyside club have now decided to cash in.

The are expected to give a portion of the fee to new manager Sean Dyche once he is officially confirmed as Frank Lampard's successor.

Gordon is a home-grown product and has been at Everton since 2012, scoring seven goals in 65 games since making his debut in 2020.

He has not started a game since the home defeat to Wolves on Boxing Day and his last goal came on 22 October in a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace, Everton's last win in all competitions.
