Newcastle: Scunthorpe keen on Longstaff

Longstaff is currently on loan with Blackpool but his deal with the club is set to expire on January 6 and Scunthorpe are hoping to swoop for his signature.

The 20-year-old has impressed at Bloomfield Road, scoring six times and providing a further six assists in 23 appearances.

Blackpool are keen to extend his stay in the north west but Longstaff could be tempted by a move to Scunthorpe as they push for promotion, while the Seasiders have recently slipped down the table and sit just five points above the relegation zone after failing to win any of their last seven League One games.

The Newcastle academy graduate is yet to make a senior appearance for the Magpies and is unlikely to be part of Rafael Benitez’s plans in the second half of the season so another loan spell looks set to be on the cards.
