Formal offer arrives for Elliot Anderson and three clubs ‘make contact’ over summer move – Report

According to the Northern Echo, Sheffield Wednesday have submitted a loan bid for Newcastle United teenager Elliot Anderson.

The same piece states that Championship trio West Brom, Reading and Stoke have also ‘made contact’ with club officials over a potential deal.

However, Eddie Howe has no plans to sanction an early move away for the 19-year-old talent and will instead offer him a chance to impress over pre-season before making a decision.

This comes after the Geordie talent enjoyed an outstanding stint at Bristol Rovers over the second half of the 2021/22 season, bagging eight goals and five assists in 21 appearances – including the all important goal that helped Joey Barton’s side seal promotion to League One on the final day!

Given the amount of interest he’s already receiving from Championship sides, a move to the third tier with promotion hopefuls Sheffield Wednesday seems unlikely if he does go out on loan again.

The Echo say there’s a “good chance” Anderson heads out one more time to further his development at senior level, but he could yet feature in Howe’s Premier League plans if he impresses over pre-season – especially when he wouldn’t have to be registered to our 25-man squad as a player under the age of 21.
