The St James' Park duo are said to be in discussions on signing new deals at Newcastle.
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.
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...
If what the Mail’s saying about Sean Longstaff’s contract impasse is true. Then come Jan Ashley wants to offload the burden that is JJ Shelvey and his 70K wage and offer Sean a 6 yr 100K a week deal. Matty’s introduction makes Shelvey impotent IMO. #NUFC #AshleyOut— Chris Armin (@chris_armin) October 16, 2019
If either of them left I don't think we will have to worry about Ashley leaving, the fans will burn the stadium to the ground— Wez Blackett (@BlackettWez) October 16, 2019
Sean to Man United I believe Carrick turned his head.— Julie Husband (@husband_julie) October 16, 2019
Would u want to go to Man U at this present time.

How long will it be before MA sells them both.— Mark Fleming. Loves Comedy, Music, Drama. (@NorthernSoulMod) October 17, 2019
Not long i bet. The new contracts are not given out of loyalty to the lads. They are given so our dreadful owner can put an unbelievable transfer fee on their heads.
Is that loyalty...No.
Is it progression...No.
Tricky, if Man Utd are willing to pay what was reported then the accompanying wage is going to exceed £100k pw..... Ashley seems to have a ceiling around £80k.— Graham Watson (@GrahamW87907976) October 17, 2019
Both a far cry from £850 and £10k or whatever.... my guess is a take it or leave it offer and the media blame game.
Better coz £850 was too little— Prosper (@Prospermitchell) October 17, 2019
