Bruce to make a final plea to Matty Longstaff

Newcastle United head coach Steve Bruce will make a final plea to Matty Longstaff to sign a new contract before the season ends.

Longstaff agreed a temporary extension to see him through until the end of the delayed campaign but when that expires, he will become a free agent.

"We have done everything as a club to keep him here and it is up to Matty to commit himself," said the Magpies boss.

"We think a lot of him, his progress was fantastic up until Christmas and then we got into negotiations which took far too long and then football shut down for three months.

"We can only ask that question and see. In the next week or so we will find out whether he is going to stay or move on."
