After digging his heels in and skipping multiple training sessions, Anthony Gordon finally got his wish as he completed a £40m transfer to Newcastle this weekend.
In an emotional message to his former supporters, he wrote: "There have been some difficult moments this year but I never took any of it personally; stick by the team because they need you.
" I love this club and always have from the day I joined but the time has come for me to leave. I know many won't understand but the next chapter awaits. I will always wish the best for this club and always be watching on."
