According to 90Min, Newcastle United’s new owners intend to make new contracts for Matty and Sean Longstaff a priority when they finally take over.
Whilst there has been something of a delay, Newcastle’s takeover should still go through as the Saudi Arabian sovereign wealth fund, Amanda Staveley and the Reuben brothers join forces in a £300million deal.
Big name signings have been touted, but it’s stated that one of the first orders of business for the new regime is the situations regarding the Longstaff brothers.
Matty is out of contract this summer, whilst Sean’s deal runs until 2022, but he wants a new deal reflecting his position as a first-team player.
Back in March, TEAMtalk reported that Arsenal, Everton and West Ham United were all keen on signing Matty, having seen him break through this season.
The 20-year-old has scored twice in seven games this season, with both goals coming against Manchester United, and looks set to leave Newcastle as things stand.
The new owners seemingly understand the importance of keeping the youngster, especially as they would be entitled to minimal compensation if he signs for a foreign club.
With Sean, Manchester United have been linked with him in recent times, but it seems that the owners will now work hard to keep him alongside his brother.
