Sean Longstaff

Everton are expected to make a fresh offer to sign Sean Longstaff from Newcastle United, according to reports from the Daily Express.

Rafa Benitez is keen to be reunited with the Magpies’ midfielder whom he worked with during their time together at St James’ Park.

Longstaff faces an uncertain future with his contract due to expire in the summer, meaning that a January move could be on the cards.

However Eddie Howe has insisted that he sees Sean Longstaff as a long-term part of his plans on Tyneside.

He told Newcastle World: “Sean has a long-term future at this football club.

“I’ve been impressed with him since I came in. He’s been committed, trained well and earned his place in the team.

“Against Manchester United, I thought he was excellent. The whole team wasn’t particularly good against Cambridge.

“We’re looking for a response from the team and Sean is part of that team.”
