Matty Longstaff has penned a new deal with Newcastle United


Newcastle United can confirm that midfielder Matty Longstaff has signed a new contract with the club.

The 20-year-old Academy product initially stepped up to the first team squad after impressing Steve Bruce last summer and he was duly handed his Premier League debut against Manchester United in October 2019.

His superb winning goal in that game saw him collect the Premier League Goal of the Month award, as well as a nomination for the Goal of the Season prize, and he scored again in the return game at Old Trafford last December.

He ended his breakthrough season with three goals in 15 appearances and won his first cap for England at under-19 level in November 2019.

Despite his contract expiring at the end of the prolonged 2019/20 campaign, the boyhood Newcastle fan has now agreed a new two-year deal.
