Newcastle 'are yet to reopen talks with Matty Longstaff after he turned down new contract earlier this year'... and £850-a-week midfielder could move to Italy for free this summer 

Newcastle have made no attempt to tie Matty Longstaff down to a new contract since he rejected their first offer, according to The Chronicle. 

The midfielder, who came through the club's academy before breaking into the first team earlier this season, rejected the terms offered to him in January.

Longstaff, whose brother Sean is also yet to agree a new contract at St James' Park, is out of contract this summer and will be able to leave for free.

He currently earns a basic salary of just £850 a week, despite playing 12 times for the first team in all competitions this term.

AC Milan and Inter have both been credited with an interest in Longstaff, and The Chronicle claims he has at least one concrete offer on the table from an Italian club.

It is believed clubs outside of England could sign him for a compensation fee of just £400,000, although that figure would be higher if he remains in England.

Speaking about Longstaff's contract situation earlier this season, manager Steve Bruce said: 'Of course it's a concern.

'I just hope that he looks at it as a football decision. Ultimately, when you are 19, it is about how you look after your career, rather than anything else.

'I'm pretty sure there are people in his ear, and distractions.

'At the end of the day, if you have a successful career, money will find you.'
