Sunderland Kevin Phillips has joined in the debate over Matty Longstaff's future at Newcastle United - warning it would be 'typical' of the club not to sign him up to a new deal.

Longstaff has impressed since his debut against Manchester United earlier in the season, and scored in the 4-1 victory over Rochdale in the FA Cup.

His performances have attracted reported interest from AC Milan, and with his contract running out at the end of the season, fans are hoping a deal can be thrashed out quickly.



Phillips, who famously scored the winner in a 2-1 win over Newcastle at St James' Park in 1999, has urged United to sort Longstaff's future out.

"I’ll be careful what I say to you," he told Football Insider, "but would it be typical Newcastle not to tie him up?

“You would like to think having the impact that he’s had on the club you’d tie him down, I’m sure they will, unless he’s got somebody in his ear, an agent, telling him, ‘you know I can get you a better deal elsewhere’.

“You would stay at your home-grown club, you’re going to get opportunities, with your brother, learn your trade, become better and better because in time you’ll move on, but at the minute you’re at the right place.” Talks with both Matty and his older brother Sean have taken place regarding new deals, but nothing has yet been agreed.
