Newcastle United will reportedly look at rewarding Anthony Gordon with a new deal after Liverpool's transfer interest.

Gordon was recently offered to Liverpool as the Magpies needed to raise funds before the Profit and Sustainability Rules (PSR) deadline of June 30. However, talks broke down after Jarell Quansah was requested to head in the opposite direction as part of the transfer agreement.

The Telegraph claimed that the 23-year-old was open to a move to Anfield and had been talking about it to his England teammates while on international duty at the Euros. His agent was also reported to have been 'pushing hard' for his transfer.

However, the ECHO understands that while contact between the two clubs did take place, Newcastle's request to include Jarell Quansah as part of the deal proved to be a sticking point as the Reds view him as an important member of the squad. The ECHO's sister title The Evening Chronicle reports the dust is now settling and the need for Newcastle to offload big names is calming down.

However, after contact was established, there are no guarantees that Liverpool won't revisit the prospect of signing the winger. The report adds that new Newcastle sporting director Paul Mitchell will now establish how serious Liverpool's interest is and test the water with Gordon and his representatives. It is also claimed that Newcastle's PSR affair has 'unsettled' a number of first-team players and the club's unwillingness to trade players has left them with more questions than answers.

The report adds that the Magpies might look at a new contract for the Everton academy graduate. His current deal is set to run out in the summer of 2026.
