Despite spending big during last summer’s transfer window, Newcastle United are yet to delve into the market this month. 

The Magpies only signing – 18-year-old winger Garang Kuol – arrived from Australian side Central Coast Mariners, but Eddie Howe is otherwise yet to lure any other new recruits to St. James’ Park.

That could be about to change, though, as the club have reportedly agreed a deal to sign a Premier League forward.

According to Keith Downie, The Magpies have agreed a deal to land Everton’s Anthony Gordon.

The Englishman has been heavily linked with a move away from Goodison Park and has missed training with The Toffees in recent days amid ongoing speculation.

Now, the 21-year-old will move north to join Newcastle in a deal worth a reported £40 million.

The player will reportedly undergo a medical with Newcastle in the next 24-48 hours, before the deal is officially completed and announced.

Gordon made his Everton debut in a Europa League tie back in 2017, but he has established himself as a regular for his boyhood club more recently.

Gordon is on his way to Newcastle UnitedIn total, the forward has made 78 appearances for Everton, including 65 in the Premier League.

The youngster has two-and-a-half years remaining on his current Everton deal, but he appears to have made it quite clear that he wanted to leave the club this month.

Having graduated from Everton’s youth setup as a teenager, Gordon quickly became a fan favourite at Goodison Park courtesy of a string of good performances last term.

That has quickly disappeared, though, and the player has been criticised by sections of The Toffees’ supporters at recent home matches.

As reported by The Guardian earlier this week, the player missed training with Everton on a number of occasions in order to try to push through a move to St. James’ Park.

Chelsea, who tried to sign the winger last summer, are also thought to have once again shown an interest in the player this month.
