Some Newcastle fans have their say on the Longstaff brothers' contract situation

Newcastle United's Sean and Matty Longstaff arrive at St James' Park ahead of the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Manchester United at St. James Park on October 6, 2019...

The St James' Park duo are said to be in discussions on signing new deals at Newcastle.

Newcastle United's Sean and Matty Longstaff arrive at St James' Park ahead of the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Manchester United at St. James Park on October 6, 2019...

The Daily Mail have reported this week that Newcastle prospect Matty Longstaff is set to be rewarded with a new contract.

The 19-year-old burst on to the scene prior to the international break, making national headlines with his winning goal against Manchester United.

It was subsequently reported that the midfielder earns just £850-per-week on his current deal, which expires at the end of this season (The Sun).

His brother Sean meanwhile has had a big 2019 too and is reported to be the subject of transfer interest from Manchester United.

 

No surprise then that the Magpies would be looking to tie both down to new long-term deals.

The Mail say that talks with Sean have reached an impasse, with the club hoping to sign him up on a massive six-year contract.

The club are a little more protected when it comes to the older brother though, who signed his last contract less than a year ago.

Still, it should be a clear priority to reward their progress and keep them as happy as possible, with both looking to have the potential to be top performers at the club over the next few years.

Sean Longstaff (R) laughs as he warms up during the Newcastle United Training Session at the Newcastle United Training Centre on October 16, 2019 in Newcastle upon Tyne, England.

Some supporters are anxious to see deals done, although others are more cynical about the intentions of the hierarchy at St James' Park.

These fans have taken to Twitter over the last 48 hours to share their thoughts on it all...
