NEWCASTLE have confirmed the shirt number of new winger Anthony Gordon.
Gordon completed a transfer from Everton late in the January window.
And after penning a £45million transfer to Eddie Howe's high-flying Magpies, Gordon's shirt number has now been revealed.
The 21-year-old will inherit shirt number eight, while fellow new signing Harrison Ashby will take up the number 30.
The number eight shirt became vacant after Jonjo Shelvey left to join Nottingham Forest.
The ex-Liverpool midfielder joined on a contract running to 2025.

Gordon penned his Goodison farewell with a statement but was slammed by talkSPORT's Simon Jordan.
He said: "Players going from Everton to Newcastle saying 'I'm glad I've gone so I can give the club back £45million'.
