TEAMtalk understands Newcastle United starlet Matty Longstaff is contemplating leaving his hometown club this summer, with a host of offers on the table.
The 19-year-old midfielder will be out of contract in June and, has thus far, failed to agree new terms with the Tyneside club, and he is now ready to walkaway from the club at the end of the season.
We understand that Borussia Dortmund, Ajax, Club Brugge, Inter Milan and Atalanta have all made contact with the player, although it is believed up to a dozen European clubs have made approaches for the talented midfielder.
There is also interest in England with Arsenal, Everton and West Ham also expressing an interest for the player, who has made 12 appearances for Steve Bruce this season.
Both Matty and his older brother Sean have been in talks with the club for some time with 22-year-old Sean having last summer found himself a target for Manchester United,.
However, an agreement is yet to be reached with either player and Bruce has been anxiously awaiting a breakthrough.
Asked about Matty’s situation last month, he said: “It’s a concern for us all, of course it is. I hope we can get that tied up, I really do.
“But, they’ve got the power these days, the players. We see it often now with young players as well. I hope there’s a bit of common sense.
“There’s nobody, at 19, played more games than him. He’s got an opportunity.”
