A transfer to Newcastle would see Gordon link up with fellow England international Callum Wilson, who spoke about the turmoil going on at Everton during the BBC Sounds' Footabller's Football Podcast this week.

Wilson shared his love for Everton but criticised the running of the club which has left them facing relegation from the Premier League.

Wilson said: "It's never nice, managers to lose their job. I feel Frank has come in and been given a bit of time. Everton's track record is they've got rid of a lot of managers over the last few years. They need time to settle in and get their feet under the table and bring the players they want to get in and that.

"They've had six managers in six years. That's a bit of turnover. There's no stability going on, different philosophies, players that are still there from different managers on long-term contracts. It's frustrating for the fans, players come and go but fans are there permanently and that's their club for life."

Wilson went on to add that Everton is a "big, historic and passionate" football club and sympathised with Toffees fans having to endure the current situation.

He said: "The fans live, breathe and sleep their football club and to see it slipping away slowly is where the frustration lays. They just want a team to try hard and give everything they can.

"I hope they get out of it. They are a big club, I enjoy playing at Goodison Park. Fingers crossed they get themselves out."
