Anthony Gordon finally sealed his move away from Everton, with Newcastle United signing him in a deal that is expected to rise up to 55-million euros.

As part of the unveiling, Newcastle United showed their new acquisition a video of him confronting Magpies players during a Premier League clash earlier in the season.

He will now share the same dressing room with the same players under Eddie Howe. Magpies lead striker, Callum Wilson chipped in with a cunning comment:

"If you can't beat them, join them."

Gordon reviewed the footage and let out a sheepish smile.

He will be expected to put in the work to break into Howe's starting XI. Miguel Almiron and Joelinton have cemented their places in the wide areas, with Allan Saint-Maximin coming from the bench.

The Magpies are currently third on the table with 39 points. They are also one step away from qualifying for the Carabao Cup final.

As the Croatian trudged off the pitch, Jacob Murphy - a Newcastle second-half substitute - sarcastically waved him off to the delight of the opposition supporters.

The Saints were playing the Magpies in the first Carabao Cup semi-final on January 24, with Joelinton giving the visitors the lead in the 73rd minute.
