It is still unknown as to who will be in the Newcastle hot seat for next season, but the Toon chiefs will surely be working behind the scenes as they look to bring in the right man. Today’s Newcastle transfer roundup includes Premier League interest in a 21-year-old midfielder, an approach made in regards to the manager’s job and an update in the pursuit of another boss.
According to The Metro, Manchester United are willing to match Newcastle’s £30m valuation of Sean Longstaff. United think he is worth £25m but are happy to meet the North East club’s asking price and are confident of signing the Englishman after Rafa Benitez’s exit from St. James Park.
The Daily Mail is reporting that Porto boss Sergio Conceicao has been approached by Newcastle in regards to becoming their new manager. Sky Sports has already reported that Conceicao would be open to a switch to the Premier League club, and now Newcastle have made their move.
Newcastle are confident that they can persuade Steven Gerrard to leave Rangers and become their new manager according to The Northern Echo. The 39-year-old only joined Rangers last season, taking the Glasgow-based side to second in the SPFL.
