Anthony Gordon is closing in on a move to Newcastle

Newcastle United have agreed a fee with Everton for Anthony Gordon.

The two clubs have come to on an initial fee of £40m plus add-ons that could see the deal rise to £45m in total.

Personal terms still are now being discussed as Gordon’s move to St James’ Park edges closer.

Gordon, who attended Everton’s training ground on Friday morning, made it clear to Everton he wanted to leave the club in this transfer window.

The 21-year-old had failed to turn up for the previous three days as Newcastle’s efforts to sign him increased.It is reported this week that the forward was not there on Tuesday due to a planned absence, but did not show up on Wednesday and Thursday for unplanned reasons.

Sources indicate he did not train with the rest of his team-mates at Finch Farm on Friday, but Everton’s stance is he trained as normal.

Newcastle see Gordon as a player who can operate in a number of positions across the front line.

Eddie Howe’s side were rebuffed with an inquiry in the summer but have retained an interest.

During the summer transfer window, Chelsea conducted high-level talks with Everton over Gordon’s availability.

He was then seen as one of Thomas Tuchel’s top targets and Chelsea were prepared to pay £60m to bring him to Stamford Bridge.

Why is Gordon in demand?

Sean Dyche is expected to be appointed Everton manager on Friday.

Former Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa and Dyche both held talks with the club on Thursday, with the former spotted in London for negotiations with the Everton board.

But it seems the former Burnley manager has won the race to succeed Frank Lampard at Goodison Park.
