Newcastle United youngster Elliot Anderson is set to be loaned out this summer, according to reports.

Championship sides West Brom, Millwall and Middlesbrough are among clubs also linked with interest in the youngster, who has racked up seven goals and five assists in just 20 appearances for Gas.

It is suggested West Brom could have the upper hand in the race to sign the tricky 19-year-old after Steve Bruce handed him his two senior Newcastle appearances during his time at the club.

The Magpies are keen to develop his talent, but with significant summer transfer activity expected this summer, a loan switch seems the most likely next step.

Speaking earlier this season after a 1-0 win over Colchester, his Bristol Rovers manager Joey Barton gave the highest of comparisons.

“I listened to the Bill Shankley tapes a lot today,” he said.

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

“Elliot was brilliant for us from day one we brought him in. I would have paid to watch him tonight – he was so good. He grew into the shirt and his goal capped off an outstanding performance.
