Newcastle 'On The Verge' Of Parting With Sean Longstaff To Man Utd

Sean Longstaff in pre-season training with Newcastle

Longstaff, who has eight Premier League starts to his name, could become the club's third signing of the transfer window.

Sky Sports News understands Longstaff is hopeful a deal can be agreed to have the opportunity to speak to Manchester United, but understands if Newcastle will not sell and is fully committed to the club.

Longstaff is a product of the Newcastle United academy and broke through the senior team in December a year ago, after having had two successful loan stints at Kilmarnock and Blackpool.

Longstaff ended the 2018-19 season with just 13 appearances to his name, in which he found the back of the net on two occasions, while setting up one goal as well.

The Magpies will be participating in the Premier League Asia Trophy as they face Wolverhampton Wanderers, Manchester City and West Ham United respectively.

United's only new signings so far remain Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James, and both players had to sing in front of their new teammates along with Scott McTominay as part of an initiation ceremony during a dinner in Perth on Wednesday.

Newcastle, according to sources, are using the £50m paid to Crystal Palace for Aaron Wan-Bissaka as a barometer for their valuation, a stance that has stunned United chiefs considering Longstaff's lack of experience. However, the Mancunians are unwilling to offer more than £20 million for Longstaff and could now pull out of the deal, given the Magpies' exorbitant demands.

Although it's understandable to quote £50million for a player as invaluable to Newcastle as Longstaff, it'd be fairly unjust to deny him the chance of a life-changing transfer.

However, with the club now without a manager, and a growing need for new signings themselves, Newcastle are believed to be demanding £50m.
