The 18-year-old midfielder is one of the most exciting prospects coming out of Newcastle’s academy and is highly rated by those at St. James’ Park.


Anderson made his senior debut for the Magpies in their FA Cup defeat to Arsenal in January and went on to play his first Premier League game against the Gunners in the same month.



The teenager has featured on the Newcastle bench four times since making his league debut, but is waiting for a chance to get more minutes under his belt.


With the Tyneside-based club edging towards safety, Anderson could be in line to make a few more appearances for the side between now and the end of the season.



Steve Bruce’s side currently sit 16th in the table with 36 points and are nine points above 18th-placed Fulham with just five more games to go in the campaign.


Newcastle ensuring Premier League safety could give them the chance to hand appearances to Anderson, who has been training with the first team this season.



The Scot captained Newcastle Under-18s side in their FA Youth Cup clash against Aston Villa on Tuesday, but suffered a 6-1 defeat.
