Newcastle first met Everton’s Anthony Gordon, but the Merseyside club are unwilling to sell.

Newcastle are looking to add players to their squad this summer and have identified Gordon as a target.

Sky Sports News he was told that Newcastle had not paid, instead it was a temporary inquiry into which he considered his options.

Everton, however, are determined to keep the 21-year-old, which makes it unlikely that Gordon’s contract will continue.
