Newcastle United brothers Sean and Matty Longstaff are changing agents in an attempt to sort out their futures, via Sky Sports correspondent Keith Downie.
The midfield duo have been subject to great scrutiny in recent weeks, with transfer gossip circling 20-year-old Matty, who is out of contract this summer and attracting attention from a range of high-profile European clubs like Arsenal, Ajax, Borussia Dortmund and Everton.
Matty has made seven appearances in the Premier League for Steve Bruce’s Black and Whites this season, notably scoring against Manchester United at St James’ Park and Old Trafford, and contributing to the 4-1 win over Rochdale in the FA Cup third round replay. The youngster’s market value is registered at only £3.6m per Transfermarkt.
His older brother Sean has played in 21 games in the English top flight for the Magpies this campaign, picking up an assist against Norwich City in August. He is currently valued at £19.8m according to Transfermarkt.
Many supporters replied to the journalist’s tweet as expected, and several Geordies urged the board to come to terms with the siblings, with one Geordie pleading they had “better get a deal sorted.” Others branded the update “encouraging” and suggested an agreement “would be some much needed good news.”
Take a look at some of the different responses down below…

I hope this time out helps Sean out? But we need these lads and there obviously want to stay?. But I do think Matty needs to be loaned out to gain experience and get proper game time.
