Newcastle United: Sean and Matty Longstaff contract stance have supporters questioning club transfer policy

Newcastle United: Sean and Matty Longstaff contract stance have supporters questioning club transfer policy - Newcastle United

According to an update by Chronicle journalist Lee Ryder, Newcastle United midfielder Matty Longstaff could leave the club for as little as a £400,000 compensation fee to Europe if he does not sign a new deal – leaving some Magpies supporters to plead that they get the new contract signed. 

The younger Longstaff brother, who was tipped to sign a new contract until they could not agree on terms, has been attracting interesting from Serie A table-toppers Inter Milan who have been keeping an eye on the deal dispute – with a number of clubs from Italy, Germany and Spain also interested (The Chronicle).

Longstaff, who has amassed an 80% pass accuracy in midfield this season over six league starts while scoring in each fixture against Premier League giants Man United, appears to have all the power when it comes to negotiation – with his older brother Sean’s new deal a lesser priority given he is tied down to the club until 2022. By comparison, the senior Longstaff doesn’t quite match his sibling’s pass success rate (78.1%) but does average more shots per game (0.9), as per WhoScored.com.
