Leaving Newcastle United

With Longstaff – described as “brilliant in training” by his brother and Newcastle teammate Sean Longstaff in The Chronicle in October 2019 – out of contract at the Magpies, it is hard to see the player reach an agreement with the Premier League club over a new deal now.

The 20-year-old has reportedly rejected the Magpies’ offer, and it is hard to see him sign a new deal.

The midfielder is a very talented and promising young player who has huge potential and will get better in the coming years.

Both Southampton and West Ham are established clubs in the Premier League, and Longstaff would be a brilliant signing for the Saints or the Hammers, especially on a free transfer.
