Newcastle United youngster Elliot Anderson looks all set for a bright future.

The teenager made his debut for the club back in January against Arsenal, which didn’t come as too much of a surprise to those behind the scenes at the club.

Anderson is viewed as one of, if not the best young prospect at the club, and lots of Magpies supporters are hoping to see more of him between now and the end of the season.

It seems it isn’t just supporters Anderson has made a big impression on.

According to an article from The Chronicle, ‘Allan Saint-Maximin and Joelinton have called Anderson a ‘crack’, which is the utimate compliment given to a skilful player, while captain Jamaal Lascelles told the academy graduate that his debut against Arsenal last month was fully deserved’.

He may not have had too many opportunities game-wise just yet, but Anderson has been a regular trainer with the first-team, and so the senior players will have a clear understanding of Anderson’s talent.


It’s explained that not only is Anderson wowing constantly with his talent on the ball, but his attitude is apparently spot on and staff are very taken by the 18-year-old and his desire.

Newcastle look to have a gem

It seems that Newcastle look to have a young player with genuine top quality potential on their hands.

The words coming out of the club about Anderson are very encouraging and hopefully he is going to get some chances before the end of the season.

It certainly seems like he deserves a shot, but it might depend on Newcastle pulling away from the relegation zone in order for Steve Bruce to trust him.
