Nottingham Forest agree Elliot Anderson deal with Newcastle

Newcastle United have agreed a deal with Nottingham Forest for the permanent transfer of midfielder Elliot Anderson to the City Ground side.

The Tyneside club are reluctantly prepared to part with the 21-year-old academy graduate to help ensure their compliance with the Premier League’s profitability and sustainability rules (PSR).

Anderson is willing to accept the move and a medical is expected to follow ahead of completing a proposed transfer.

The deal to sell Anderson follows Saturday’s earlier news that Brighton & Hove Albion have agreed a fee in the region of £33million to sign Newcastle winger Yankuba Minteh.

The Athletic previously reported that Newcastle were holding talks with multiple clubs over potential deals to resolve their PSR issues. Those include discussions with Nottingham Forest over Minteh, as well as Anderson, with winger Anthony Elanga potentially heading to Newcastle in a separate deal.

Newcastle have been seeking sales in order to ease their difficulties with PSR, with the club potentially leaving themselves open to a possible points deduction for next season if they fail to raise sufficient funds before the June 30 reporting deadline.

Anderson has made 55 appearances for Newcastle since making his debut in 2021. He impressed on loan at Bristol Rovers in League Two during the second half of the 2021-22 season before returning to Newcastle that summer.

Last season, Anderson played 26 times for Newcastle, with 10 of those starts, amid a back injury that ruled him out from October until March.
