'It has been going on far too long and it might have affected the boy': Steve Bruce urges Matty Longstaff to make decision over his Newcastle future with his deal expiring at end of season

Newcastle boss Steve Bruce has urged Matty Longstaff to come to a decision quickly regarding his future at the club, claiming the uncertainty has gone on for 'far too long.'

The 20-year-old recently signed a short-term contract extension until the end of the season after the campaign was delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic, but he has yet to commit his future past that date.

Newcastle have put a new deal on the table for Longstaff but are still waiting his response, with Serie A outfit Udinese offering him a £30,000-per-week package - believed to be £10,000-a-week more than the Magpies' terms.
