Still celebrating their Championship title win under Rafa Benitez, the Newcastle United fans in the Transfer Tavern cannot stop dancing on the pool tables.
The Rafalution is underway and those in black and white are alright once again, with St. James’ Park now a happy place. So, continuing with that happy trend, reports from the Chronicle of late have gone down well.
According to their report, top brass on Tyneside are ready to offer midfielder Sean Longstaff a long-term new deal in order to secure his future. The 19-year-old is currently on loan with Kilmarnock and is thought to have impressed over the course of the campaign.
The Magpies reportedly plan to tie him down to a new deal before joining him out again next term, with Bury said to be keen on bringing him in on loan.
With Newcastle having such a poor record in producing young players in recent years, the idea they could be paying more attention to that area of the squad has gone down very well indeed.
