Newcastle To Keep Youngster At St James’ Park



Newcastle to keep youngster

According to The Telegraph, Newcastle are set to keep youngster Elliot Anderson for their upcoming Premier League campaign.

The Newcastle academy graduate has been linked with a number of Championship and Scottish Premiership sides after impressing during his loan spell at Bristol Rovers last season.

Anderson played a huge role in The Gas’ promotion back to League One last campaign. He grabbed 8 goals and 5 assists in 21 games including a goal and two assists in the pivotal 7-0 win against Scunthorpe on the last day of the season, which led The Pirates to third place and automatic promotion.

During his time in the South West, Bristol Rovers manager and former Toon midfielder Joey Barton compared Anderson to one of the greatest players of all time, Diego Maradona.

The 19-year-old has been away with the first-team in Austria for pre-season and has caught Eddie Howe’s eye in the process. He has made a positive impact in all of the pre-season games so far, with his fearless approach to making the step up in quality.

Anderson has also impressed fans with his displays in pre-season and have hopes that he will be the next from The Mapgies’ academy to make the step up to the first-team.

Howe has used Anderson as a part of a midfield three in the pre-season games so far. Anderson is seen as a more advanced midfielder but is also comfortable playing on the left wing.

An attack-minded midfielder is something Newcastle have wanted to add throughout the transfer window so far, with links to the likes of Lyon midfielder, Lucas Paquetá and Christian Erikson before his subsequent move to Manchester United.

With just 11 days till the start of the season keeping someone with the ability of Elliot Anderson, despite his age, would be a wise decision as The Magpies won’t want to rush into a deal for an advanced midfielder at this stage.

Initially, Anderson may not start many games for The Toon but he gives Eddie Howe a great option off the bench if Newcastle are chasing a game and need a creative spark from somewhere.

Should someone like Lucas Paquetá arrive at St James’ Park later in the window, that may change the thinking behind not loaning out Anderson as it may raise question marks over the amount of game time he receives.

Another young midfielder, Matty Longstaff may also leave on loan this summer due to the amount of competition in his role.

Longstaff, started last season on loan at Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen but only managed to make 5 appearances before his loan was cut short.

He then joined League Two side Mansfield Town in January and had a much more successful spell as he claimed 6 goals and 2 assists in 16 games and helped The Stags to the League Two Play-Off final at Wembley.

Newcastle take on Benfica tonight in a pre-season friendly which kicks off at 8pm and is free to watch on NUFC TV.

Newcastle United Kit Idea - NUFC kits

footballinsider247 are reporting that the main shirt sponsor slot for Newcastle United is expected to be filled by airline SAUDI, who sponsored Newcastle’s mid-season tour of their owners’ homeland in December.

They state ‘This site revealed in February that there is frustration at St James’ Park that they have inherited a kit deal with Castore worth just £5m per year with no break clause and several seasons left to run.’

Newcastle’s recently appointed CEO Darren Eales has already previously expressed that the club at looking at all commercial opportunities and fans on Twitter were keen to mock up their expectation for the new shirts, see below and let us know your thoughts and also see our below video on how NUFC can increase commercial avenues..

Eddie Howe’s team are currently in a strong position to achieve a European slot which would increase revenue into the club allowing more spend whilst staying within Financial Fair Play which is something Howe has spoken about on several occasions as they look to stay within. If the club do reach a European slot it should help significantly with recruitment in the summer by making it a more attractive proposition to any incoming targets.

Newcastle target rejects Everton move following £45m bid.



Newcastle united - St James Park

Everton have made a £40million bid with £5m in add-ons to sign Connor Gallagher from Chelsea.

This comes after Newcastle completed the signing of Anthony Gordon, the club’s second most expensive transfer behind Alexander Isak.

Everton received an initial fee of £40m plus add-ons that could increase the deal to £45m.

The Toffees currently sit 19th in the Premier League and are looking to reinvest the money from the Gordon deal to sign much-needed players under newly appointed manager Sean Dyche. 

But, multiple sources have reported today that Gallagher is not actively pushing for a move and has no intention of going to Goodison Park. However, with Chelsea having met the record-breaking €120m release clause for World Cup winner Enzo Fernandez, Gallagher may be forced to leave the club if the transfer is complete.

This leaves Newcastle an option as the player would prefer a move to a top-six club.

This morning, Eddie Howe said, “We’ll see what we can do to try & bring a player in. There’s no guarantees. In terms of permanent signings, it will be very difficult. We’ll look at a potential loan. But it’s got to be the right player & not one for the sake of it”.

Due to financial fair play, the only way Newcastle could sign the player is through a loan, with an obligation to buy the player for at least £45m, the same price they paid for Anthony Gordon.

Gallagher has been playing regular Premier League football over the last two seasons. Since returning to his parent club Chelsea, the 22-year-old has been linked with a move away to numerous Premier League clubs.

Last season he was named Crystal Palace’s Player of the Season by their fans. He also won the Player of the Month award twice, Goal of the Month once, and was awarded the Young Player of Year at the 2022 London Football Awards.

In the same season, he made 36 appearances scoring eight goals and registering three assists that earned Palace a 12th-place finish, one point behind Newcastle.
