Toon target could now replace Sean Longstaff as new report reveals £10m price tag & TWO clubs keen

According to The Mail, Newcastle have slapped a £10m asking price on Sean Longstaff’s head – and TWO Premier League clubs are keen to sign him.

Craig Hope reports that both Everton and Southampton are interested in the midfielder, who could now be sold given he has less than 12 months remaining on his current deal.

Interestingly, the same piece states that Longstaff could be replaced by Leicester City’s Hamza Choudhury at St James’ Park – a player we almost signed on loan in January.

It’s believed Choudhury is keen on a move to Tyneside, however it seems we’ll have to make space in our 25-man squad to allow him to sign.

Longstaff has struggled for form or regular game time under Steve Bruce, having enjoyed his best form in a black and white shirt under Rafa Benitez – the now Everton manager.

Hope – The Mail’s North-East reporter currently banned from press conferences – also reveals that the club are hoping to see Matty Longstaff sign a one-year contract extension before he leaves on loan, with his deal also due to expire in 2022.

  1. Unbelievable!!!

    Before Numpty Bruce arrived Longstaff was a target for ManU at 60 million – this is how far he’s devalued the players!

    And to cap it off we are giving him away for 10 million ONLY to get another reject alongside side Hendrick and Fraser in Choudhury (!!!???)

    Not what we need right now – we really need a strong, capable CENTRAL Midfielder to replace Shelvey and play alongside Hayden

    God Help the Toon with these Numpty’s – they haven’t a clue!


  2. As a lot of people have commented on previous articles Rafa only played him because he had no choice due to injuries. 8 good games and he’s the next big thing. Man Utd were prepared to pay £35m not the £50m we asked for. Should have snapped their hands off. He is not good enough. Matt is championship at best.
