'Bargain!' -  Sam Allardyce claims Newcastle winger Anthony Gordon is the signing of the January window

Former England manager Sam Allardyce has hailed Anthony Gordon as the signing of the January transfer window after his sensational move from Everton to Newcastle.

Gordon, who was previously linked with Chelsea last summer, left relegation-threatened Everton to sign for Newcastle in a deal worth around £45m.

Newcastle will pay Everton an initial fee of around £40m for Gordon, with an additional £5m believed to be included in add-ons.

Gordon, who arrived at Goodison Park when he was only 11 years old, was introduced to the Newcastle fans at St James’ Park on Tuesday.



The 21-year-old winger took to the pitch alongside fellow January signing Harrison Ashby at half-time ahead of Newcastle’s 2-1 second-leg semi-final win in the League Cup.

Speaking on the No Tippy Tappy Football podcast, Allardyce was asked who he thinks was the signing of the January window.

The ex-West Ham United and Everton boss believes that Newcastle manager Eddie Howe has secured a “bargain” signing in the form of Gordon.


“Anthony Gordon, I think, to Newcastle,” Allardyce said.

“I don’t know how strong that bid was from Chelsea before the window shut in the summer, which was reputed to be £60 or £70million but to let a young man go, forced his own way out to be fair, which I don’t like. An Everton boy, an Everton supporter.

“But you have to get the best you can. I think £45million is short of the real valuation of what we have seen in some of the players who have been transferred this window.



“But great for Newcastle. I’d say it was a bit of a bargain for them.”

Newcastle punched their ticket to the League Cup final with back-to-back wins over Southampton in the semi-finals.

The Magpies will now face Manchester United, who defeated Nottingham Forest in the semi-finals, in the League Cup final at Wembley on 26th February.
