Newcastle United fans have been reacting to news surrounding the future of Matty Longstaff at the club.
The writing has pretty much been on the wall for the younger Longstaff brother when it comes to his future at St. James’ Park. A recent report from local newspaper The Chronicle had claimed that the club were willing to let him go on loan this summer, with Championship sides Sheffield United, Blackburn Rovers and Huddersfield Town all reportedly holding an interest.
Combine that with the fact he hasn’t made an appearance so far this season – not even making it off the bench in their recent League Cup game – and it’s pretty clear that he’s already got one foot out the door at the club.
And it looks as if that foot will be taking him north of the border, as according to a tweet from Sky Sports journalist Keith Downie, Scottish club Aberdeen are in “advanced talks” with Newcastle over bringing in Longstaff on a loan deal.
This led to a number of furious responses from fans on social media when they saw the news:
“Disgraceful decision if it goes ahead, not the standard he should be playing at if he wants to prove he can play in the PL. Top end of the Championship should be the only option.”
With one Longstaff brother seemingly heading out the door, the question now is whether or not the same fate will befall his brother Sean before the window closes.
