Newcastle Will Give Youngster New Contract With Vastly Improved Compensation


There is news today that Manchester United are interested in Sean Longstaff – who was raised in North Shields.

The 21-year-old was nothing short of a revelation for Newcastle when he came into the side in early December, and it coincided with Newcastle starting to win games.

Sean took it all in his stride and looked a great player in the making, and he formed a strong partnership with 24-year-old Isaac Hayden in the engine room for the Magpies.

In fact, he resembled another local lad who has done very well over the last thirteen years at Old Trafford – Michael Carrick.

And Michael is now on the coaching staff of the Red Devils.

But one thing the club will do very soon, once these negotiations with Rafa finally complete (successfully) – hopefully before next Monday – will be to tie the 21-year-old down to a long term contract at his local club with increased compensation.

Sean Longstaff – was outstanding for Newcastle last season

Something we failed to do for a young Michael Carrick when he was at Wallsend Boys’ Club back in 1997 and played for England Boys’ Clubs before West Ham snapped up the 17-year-old.

And the rest is history.

There’s just no way Rafa and Newcastle will let this excellent young player leave his home town club.

But that’s always assuming Rafa stays – if he goes then Ashley could cash in on the youngster if the fee is high enough.

Here’s Keith Downie’s tweet on the news – and Newcastle will reject all advances for this outstanding young Geordie playmaker.

    Rondon may have already been told he has no future at the club, for multiple reasons.

    If he doesn’t end up signing permanently I’ll always hold him in high regard, did a fantastic job, best 9 we’ve had for years.

    The contract talks for Rafa seem a little strange, it’s all speculation from media. However if it is going to take around 72hrs to reach a agreement it suggests to me they’re miles apart.

    Stupid Man U, Sean is black and white in his blood, after breaking into his boy hood club I don’t think Sean will do a Rooney and piss all over the club and fans.

    It will be his agent that decides if Longstaff goes, I don’t believe he will go yet, his love of united is very strong and with the possibility of his brother joining him in the first team it’s all good.

    @ Jib, his dad was a canny skater in his day, would have enjoyed him playing for Durham Wasps who weren’t a bad team in the day. Good memories following the wasps in their heyday.

    Packed houses at the riverside, two gates to pay at, one gate money went to the club, 2nd gate went to the owners.

    I used to watch The Bees at Whitley Bay with greats such as Scotty Reid – used to have great games against The Wasps – Blood & Thunder full tilt. I recall going to see The Bees at Ayr and after the game asking for a pint of Best Scotch……. The barmaid’s eye’s opened wide with horror she thought I was asking for a pint of whisky!

    Played Ice Hockey myself in the junior leagues around the time of the Kenny & Terry Mathews. I also remember Bob Arnott who played in defence – not much got past him!
