Newcastle transfer stance, Liverpool FFP plan and Man City truth - Anthony Gordon future latest


Despite him being part of England's EURO 2024 squad in Germany, the club future of Newcastle United star Anthony Gordon has been plunged into public focus for the last 10 days.

It emerged last Saturday that Gordon had been offered to Liverpool as Newcastle explored ways to ensure they complied with the Premier League's Profit and Sustainability rules.

Since then, numerous claims and counter-claims have emerged over Gordon's state of mind and where his future may lie next season, amid futher reported interest from Man City and PSG.

As such, Chronicle Live have taken a look at the current state of play over Gordon's future, in terms of Liverpool's situation, the truth behind Man City's interest and Newcastle's stance over his future.

Liverpool PSR proposal

It emerged last weekend that in Newcastle's frenzied bid to comply with the Premier League's PSR, also known as FFP, rules, they offered Gordon to Liverpool in a transfer package that would have seen defender Jarell Quansah move to St James' Park.

Newcastle, like all Premier League clubs, are allowed to make losses of up to £105m over a rolling three-year period and Sunday, June 30, marked the end of the current profit and sustainability cycle.

Chronicle Live understands Liverpool were approached with a proposal that was not right for them and the move subsequently fell apart.

In the end, Newcastle managed to sell Elliot Anderson to Nottingham Forest and Yankuba Minteh to Brighton for a combined £65million and those sales, coupled with a compensation fee for Dan Ashworth's move to Manchester United to become their sporting director, ensured the Magpies were compliant for the last PSR cycle.

However, reports emerged that Gordon's head had been turned amid interest from his boyhood club and it remains to be seen whether the Reds will revisit the move with a package that better suits their needs. At the moment, the Reds have not made any further enquiries.

Man City interest 'truth'

Reports emerged over the weekend that Man City were keen to join the race to sign Gordon but those claims have now been rubbished.

Chronicle Live understands City links to the England international are untrue, while our sister title, the Manchester Evening News, have also confirmed the Cityzens have not made an approach for the 23-year-old, too.

Newcastle's stance

Newcastle don't want to lose Gordon and now their PSR worries have been put to bed for another year, they will do all they can to keep last season's Player of the Year at the club.

PSG have been credited with an interest in Gordon, too, but the Magpies plan to give Gordon a warm welcome back to the club once he returns from EURO 2024.

Alongside Bruno Guimaraes and Alexander Isak, Newcastle are keen to build the next stage of their development from the foundation of their three key players.
