Elliot Anderson has 'no desire' to leave Newcastle United despite shock Wolves link

Newcastle United midfielder Elliot Anderson has no desire to leave St James' Park this summer - despite talk of a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers emerging on Saturday.

The Geordie midfielder was mentioned in the Daily Telegraph as part of a swap deal for centre-back Max Kilman. The Wolves centre-back was involved in player plus cash offer to the Molineux club but any exit for the highly-rated Academy product has been denied by sources close to the star.

Kilman is a wanted man in this window with West Ham also interested but talk of a £25m bid for his services from the East London club have been rejected. Whitley Bay lad Anderson signed a long-term deal with Newcastle in 2022 and is aiming for a big pre-season with the Magpies.

Newcastle are fully aware that if they sell an Academy product in the window that they can gain 100% profit back for any such transaction. That would offer a major boost in PSR terms but Anderson is a boyhood fan and wants to kick on at St James' Park after an injury interrupted season last term.

Anderson suffered a back injury and missed 25 games through injury but is looking to make a big impact in pre-season. Last summer the ex-Wallsend Boys Club player starred so brightly in pre-season he was many people's pick to make the starting XI against Aston Villa but was only named as sub for the 5-1 win.

After overcoming back issues he went on to feature in the run-in with Eddie Howe pleased with his performances.
