Gordon misses Everton training again amid Newcastle talks
Anthony Gordon, who is a January transfer target for Newcastle, has failed to turn up to Everton training for a third day in a row.
The forward missed training on Tuesday with a planned absence - as did Amadou Onana. But while Onana returned to training on Wednesday, Gordon was not present and did not appear at the club's Finch Farm training ground on Thursday either.
Sky Sports News understands Gordon has not put in an official transfer request.
Gordon is the subject of a potential £40m with Newcastle believed to be the frontrunners to sign him. The Champions League contenders have held talks over a move as they look to replace Chris Wood, who joined Nottingham Forest last week.
Although not a like-for-like replacement, Newcastle see Gordon as a player who can operate in a number of positions across the front line.
