Man Utd, Celtic scout Newcastle U23 pair

Newcastle United youngsters Freddie Woodman and Sean Longstaff are attracting major transfer interest.

The Evening Chronicle says they were both checked out by a host of scouts during Friday night's Under-23 defeat against Southampton.

Newcastle were narrowly beaten by a strong Southampton second string on Friday evening at Whitley Park with Longstaff and Woodman having steady games.

The pair were watched by scouts from Celtic, Manchester United and Kilmarnock.

Celtic are well aware of Longstaff's progress and also tried to sign Woodman in January before he opted for a loan switch to Aberdeen.

Longstaff has previously attracted interest from Glasgow Rangers and AFC Bournemouth.
