NUFC fans must be buoyed by Sean Longstaff’s latest post on Twitter – Take note Man Utd..

“Now to get back fit and ready to do it again next season” – These were Sean Longstaff’s last words on social media on the final day of the season almost 2 weeks ago.

Since then the 21-year-old has received what appears to be genuine interest from Manchester United, and although a bid is reportedly ‘imminent’, his comments before parting for the summer should be a source of encouragement for us Newcastle fans.

As he highlights below, it’s been his ‘boyhood dream’ to pull on the black and white stripes at senior level, with his final line suggesting his sole focus is to get back fit and get back into Rafa Benitez’s first-team next season:

Longstaff also seems to be a wise head on young shoulders – and this could be key, with him likely to realise that he’ll need at least another season on Tyneside to develop his game and establish himself in our first-team before any huge move could be considered.

In other news, it’s actually been claimed by the Manchester Evenings News that Solksjaer’s top target is in fact West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.

West Ham are thought to be hugely reluctant to sell and will no doubt demand an astronomical fee, however it would be in our interests to see them make big moves for him instead – especially when many fear Ashley would cash in if a sizeable bid arrived.

It’s been reported by the Chronicle that Newcastle won’t sell at any price, but the same was said about Andy Carroll until a £35m offer arrived from Liverpool in 2011.

8 years later, there’s plenty evidence to suggest Ashley hasn’t changed.

  1. A huge move why would a Geordie lad that plays for his home town club want to go to Manure a team in free fall and at least one more season at the Toon give over Manure are not the team they once were hopefully the lad does a Shearer and tells then where to go and 25 million in today’s age would not buy his left boot.


  2. Aye – good question – why would he want to go to a team that had a serious dog of a season finishing only 6th, and would increase his International career no end, when he could stay with us , playing for a a team regularly fighting relegation , owned by the worst and tightest owner in the prem, which is also looking like it could be managerless?

    Aye – that’s a tricky one!

    Personally I’d say that Longstaff’s tweet, apart from coming before Man U’s interest , suggests that he has achieved his boyhood dream, and maybe it’s time for the grown up stuff.
