According to The Telegraph, Matty Longstaff is on the verge of signing a new contract with Newcastle United but the same cannot be said for his brother Sean Longstaff.
Matty scored the winner on his Premier League debut against Manchester United last month – his contract is due to expire at the end of the current season, but the 19-year-old will reportedly pen an extension ‘in the next few weeks’.
According to The Telegraph, Sean, who only penned a new contract last year, wants to become one of the club’s top earners with a new deal.
However, Newcastle are said to be reluctant to agree to the demands at this stage, with the midfielder being told that he ‘needs to do more’.
Man United were linked with a move for the older Longstaff during the summer, and it will be fascinating to see how the story develops over the next few months.
As expected, a number of Newcastle fans have some strong views on the situation, a selection of which can be seen below:
What a load of rubbish by the Telegraph, I am sure Newcastle are happy to let Sean’s contract run out if he doesn’t prove himself in the next 12 month lol He will sign one asap too.

I quite like this whether it’s true or not. He only recently got a better deal and he’s looked OK this season but that’s it. This kind of stance should keep a top prospect hungry.
Of course it might be conjecture.

I think the offer from Man U was proof he has done enough 🙈🙈

Mike Ashley wants to sell Sean Longstaff hence his lies to his yes man Steve Bruce here. All he cares about is £££s
