Sean Longstaff: Everton make offer for Newcastle midfielder with Rafa Benitez keen on reunion

Everton have made an offer for Newcastle midfielder Sean Longstaff.

Newcastle, however, are keen to hold on to the 24-year-old, who is out of contract at the end of the season.

Everton boss Rafa Benitez previously worked with Longstaff at Newcastle and would like to be reunited with him at Goodison Park.


Newcastle manager Eddie Howe is aware of Longstaff’s qualities and last month challenged the midfielder to prove why he deserves a new deal.

Howe said: “Sean is a very good player and he will have an opportunity to showcase his talent.

“He can show to me and the club he has a long-term future here. It’s in his hands as well not just our hands.”
