Anthony Gordon sent a message to Newcastle United fans after watching his new team book their spot in the Carabao Cup final. 

What’s the latest Newcastle United news?

The £40m signing, alongside fellow new arrival Harrison Ashby, was presented in front of the supporters at St James’ Park before Newcastle beat Southampton to book a first trip to Wembley this century.

Gordon became one of the most expensive signings in the club’s history towards the end of the transfer window and it’s understood the deal with Everton could rise as high as £45m should various add-ons be met.

Ashby, meanwhile, joins from West Ham in a deal thought to be worth around £2m, though again that could rise through add-ons. Two young players to come into a squad already flying, the sight of them taking in the party atmosphere was promising.

Indeed, if things are going so well at the moment, how much better could it be in the years to come?

What has Gordon said about Newcastle fans? 

Taking to Twitter after the game, Gordon wrote: “What a welcome!

“My first few days in the Toon have been special… from the people in the city to the fans in the stadium, everyone has been so welcoming.

“Can’t wait to play in front of you all & cheer on the boys at Wembley!!!”

When could Gordon make his Newcastle debut?

Clearly, Gordon has quite the job on his hands to break into the team at the moment.

Hardly in scintillating form this season, Eddie Howe is not one to make too changes when things are going well and the Joe Willock-Joelinton partnership on the left, Gordon’s main position, is hugely important to the team.

Still, perhaps Bruno Guimaraes’ red card could see Gordon make his debut against West Ham on Saturday. Presumably, Joelinton will move back into midfield, meaning Gordon and Allan Saint-Maximin will battle it out for a starting berth on the left wing.
