​Newcastle youngster Longstaff set to earn new contract

Newcastle United youngster Matty Longstaff is set to earn a new contract at the club.

The 19-year-old has burst onto the scene this term, getting into the team alongside his older brother Sean.

Given that Matty is on a very modest contract, the Magpies will try and tie him down for the long term.

They will also give him a significant salary bump, per the Daily Mail.

The Magpies want him to sign a six year deal, which would ensure that he is not in any imminent danger of being tempted by a top six club for a transfer.

The youngest Longstaff was man of the match in Newcastle's 1-0 win against Manchester United before the international break, with his long range goal settling the game.
