Newcastle defender Fabian Schar gave Anthony Gordon a stark warning as he met up with his new Magpies team-mates.
Gordon moved to the north east from Everton on Sunday in a deal that could eventually be worth a cool £45million. Newcastle paid an initial £40million for the 21-year-old, which could rise to £45million with add-ons.
The England U21 international was made to watch footage of himself squaring up to three of his new Newcastle team-mates as part of his introduction to the club. The trio included Magpies centre-half Schar, who offered a brilliant response to the midfielder after he joked: "You’ll be protecting me now."

Following a brief hug, Schar fired back: "Well, you have to deserve it first." That prompted a nervous laugh from Gordon – and several brilliant responses from Newcastle fans on social media.
One wrote: "The content you need to see. Can't stop watching the interaction between Schar and Gordon. Brilliant stuff." As a second added: "Gordon: 'You'll have to protect me now'. Schar: 'You'll have to earn it first' Love the mentality."

A fan commented: "Schar being a cold b*****d." While someone else described Schar, 31, as giving off "Godfather vibes." Despite the jokey warning from Schar, the defender embraced his new team-mate on Instagram, writing: "Anthony Gordon, you are in safe hands now."
Gordon netted seven goals in 78 appearances for the Toffees but claims that fans still haven't seen the best of him. "Since I heard of the interest, I was always convinced Newcastle were for me. People haven't seen what I'm capable of yet," Gordon told NUFC TV.
"I think the fan base and the city really suits me as a person, the way the team are playing under the gaffer really suits me, and the club just look like they're heading in the right direction.
"I feel like it's a really big step. I think under the gaffer, and the way the club's going, I can really excel here."
