Elliot Anderson is 'really admired' by Eddie Howe and Newcastle coaches - journalist
The now-19-year-old joined the Magpies when he was just eight. He has come through the ranks and impressed everyone along the way, and now, it’s time for him to make a name for himself on the biggest stage.
Elliot Anderson is ‘really admired’ by Eddie Howe and Newcastle coaches
Anderson has always been highly rated at Newcastle. He spent the second half of last season on loan at Bristol Rovers, where he scored eight goals, provided five assists and caught everyone’s eye.
The youngster was given an opportunity in Newcastle’s pre-season this summer, and he impressed there too. He has come on as a substitute on three occasions this term, and Jones believes his first start in the Premier League is right around the corner.
The journalist claimed that Anderson is ‘really admired’ by Howe and his staff because he has been overcoming every challenge they’ve put in front of him since pre-season.
Jones told GiveMeSport: “He’s really admired and every challenge that they’ve put in front of him he’s been able to overcome.
“I don’t think it’ll be long until he’s getting the odd start in the Premier League, the way that he’s going at the moment.”
Newcastle had a very decent summer transfer window.
They signed a fantastic goalkeeper in Nick Pope, an incredible defender in Sven Botman and smashed their transfer record to sign Alexander Isak up top.
The one area they didn’t strengthen is midfield, where Bruno Guimaraes, Joelinton and Joe Willock have fared extremely well since Howe took charge of the club.
The lack of additions in midfield could open the door for Anderson to show his worth, especially when we enter the hectic schedule in October before the World Cup.
