Newcastle starlet Elliot Anderson being chased by Millwall for loan move after impressing at Bristol Rovers

NEWCASTLE youngster Elliot Anderson is wanted on loan by Millwall for next season.

The midfielder, 19, has been a huge hit with Bristol Rovers after joining them in January.

Now a host of clubs who missed that chance are sorry —  and looking into taking him next time.

But Gary Rowett’s Lions are making the biggest play and he likes  Anderson’s craft.

Newcastle may tie him down to a longer contract when he returns from Joey Barton’s Rovers.

But the chance to see him in action at Championship level looks likely to suit all parties.

Anderson has been so impressive in Bristol that Barton claims he plays like Diego Maradona when the Argentine legend was 19.

The former Newcastle ace previously said: “I’ve been listening to Bill Shankly tapes a lot.

“He talked a lot about a 19-year-old Diego Maradona and how he slows down in the penalty area, exactly like Elliot Anderson does. Such a talent.

“Elliot has been brilliant for us from the first day we brought him in.”


Newcastle boss Eddie Howe has been keeping tabs on Anderson and admits he is impressed.

Howe said: “I’m so pleased for him. When we came in, we could see he’s a player of undoubted quality and I’d heard a lot of good things before working with him.

“He has a great attitude and stayed behind every day to work on certain aspects of his games. He was aware he needed to go out and play. We wanted that for him and delighted he’s doing so well.

“It’s not a surprise for me, I think he can play a lot higher than League Two but he has taken his opportunity and we’ll have to review him like we will with every player in the summer.”
