The Chronicle quotes Longstaff as saying: "I’m massively flattered to have my name even mentioned in those conversations but like I said, I’m 100% focused on Newcastle and trying to get fit and get back in the team here."
Positive news for Newcastle United
Longstaff is a very good and promising young midfielder, and he is a future star for Newcastle.
The 21-year-old midfielder showed this season what he is capable of, and his performances for Rafael Benitez’s side were very good.
The Englishman staying at St. James’ Park next season is certainly good news for Newcastle fans.
According to WhoScored, Longstaff made eight starts and one substitute appearance in the Premier League for Newcastle this season, scoring one goal in the process.
Tiemoue Bakayoko future
Newcastle have been linked with Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko in the summer transfer window.
It has been reported that Newcastle scouts watched the 24-year-old in action during his loan spell at AC Milan.
Bakayoko’s agent and brother, Abdoulaye, has suggested that the midfielder will stay at Chelsea next season.
”We already know there is the Champions League [at Chelsea] and we are looking for stability. Tiemoue has decided to stay there."
According to WhoScored, Bakayoko made 26 starts and five substitute appearances in Serie A for Milan this season, scoring one goal and providing one assist in the process.
