Newcastle United have agreed a deal to sign Everton star Anthony Gordon, according to reports.

The move is said to be worth around £40 million – £20m shy of what Everton reportedly turned down from Chelsea last summer – with the contract being described as a "long-term deal". 

The transfer is expected to go through in the next 24 to 48 hours and strengthens Newcastle in attack for the second half of the season, as they chase Europe and look forward to a potential first cup final in 24 years, having beaten Southampton 1-0 in the Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg this week.

Newcastle were rivalling Chelsea for Gordon's signature – though this deal now leaves the Toffees in a precarious place with the transfer window slamming shut on Tuesday. 

Everton are still without a manager and could yet lose midfield star Amadou Onana, who is attracting interest. The Merseysiders sit 19th in the Premier League table, level on points with bottom-placed Southampton.

To make matters worse this week, they were beaten to the transfer of Arnaut Danjuma by Tottenham Hotspur, despite the Dutch winger having completed media duties for the club, just needing to hand in a signed contract to the FA to confirm his move.

The 21-year-old is estimated to be worth around €40m by Transfermarkt (opens in new tab)
