Elliot Anderson is set to switch nationalities again, with the Newcastle United starlet ready to join up with the Scotland U21s squad (Daily Record).

Earlier this year, Anderson turned out for the England U19s, despite having played at youth level for Scotland. Anderson made his Newcastle United debut in the 2020/21 season against Arsenal prior to his England youth debut.

But now Anderson – who doesn’t need to fully commit to a nation until he makes a senior appearance – will test the waters with Scott Gemmill’s U21s squad. The Scotland youth side will go to Spain for an upcoming training camp, looking to schedule friendlies with Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland and possibly Iceland.

The Newcastle United talent would join new recruits like Athletic Bilbao’s Ewan Urain and Hibs’ Josh Doig as Gemmill’s side undergoes a revamp with players now ineligible for the U21s.

 

Aged 18, attacking midfielder Anderson has made two senior appearances for the Premier League side under Steve Bruce.
