Newcastle United midfielder Sean Longstaff could join Watford via Udinese connection

​Newcastle United could potentially lose midfielder, Matty Longstaff, to rivals Watford according to the Daily Mail reports.

Longstaff is set to be out of contract in the summer and reports claim that Newcastle have not been able to tie him down to a new deal and that fuels rumours that he is leaving St James' Park.

The Magpies reportedly offered to give him £15,000-a-week wages but he turned them down which led to potentially offer him £20,000-a-week - he allegedly wants £25,000-a-week if he is to stay at the club.

Serie A side Udinese are believed to be offering £30,000-a-week which might prompt to make a move to Italy despite wanting to remain in England.

It's quite interesting that Udinese is owned by Giampaolo Pozzo who happens to own Watford as well and both clubs have been involved in loan and permanent deals of their respective players.

Watford would have had to part with £3million if they signed Longstaff while Udinese would have been charged £450,000.
