However, his younger brother Matty has agreed a new contract, and that should be announced soon.
Do you think Sean Longstaff will sign a new deal this season?
Yes, we need to secure his future
No, he hasn't done enough to earn a big wage increase
It would be brilliant to get Sean tied down to a deal that better reflects his ability as well, but getting Matty sealed will be another positive step in a season that has transformed since we were humiliated by Leicester City.
These Toon fans, though, do not believe that Sean won’t sign a new deal as well as Matty.
See the best of the reaction below.
Newcastle United’s young midfielder Matty Longstaff will sign a new contract in the next few weeks but older brother Sean has been told he needs to do more to earn a second new deal in the space of 12 months. [Telegraph] #NUFC

What a load of rubbish by the Telegraph, I am sure Newcastle are happy to let Sean’s contract run out if he doesn’t prove himself in the next 12 month lol He will sign one asap too.

I think the offer from Man U was proof he has done enough ????????

Many Newcastle fans think that the club will give Sean a new contract.
I quite like this whether it’s true or not. He only recently got a better deal and he’s looked OK this season but that’s it. This kind of stance should keep a top prospect hungry.
Of course it might be conjecture.

Other Magpies supporters, though, feel that Sean has not done enough to earn a new deal yet.
