Newcastle have completed the £45m transfer of winger Anthony Gordon from Everton, making him the club's second most expensive signing.

Everton said in a statement that they sanctioned the move for academy graduate Gordon to join the Magpies after he "submitted a formal transfer request".

Gordon has signed a long-term contract at Newcastle after they agreed to pay an initial £40m plus add-ons that could see the deal rise to £45m, with the £63m paid for Alexander Isak last summer remaining their club-record transfer.

He leaves Goodison Park having scored seven goals in 78 appearances, and says "people haven't seen what I'm capable of yet" following his move to Newcastle.

"Since I heard of the interest, I was always convinced Newcastle were for me," Gordon told NUFC TV.

"I think the fan base and the city really suits me as a person, the way the team are playing under the gaffer at the minute really suits me, and the club just look like they're heading in the right direction.

Gordon could make his debut for the Magpies when they take on West Ham United at St James' Park on 4 February.
