The midfielder has enjoyed a memorable start to 2019, having secured his place in Rafa Benitez's starting line-up following a string of fine performances.

Longstaff's latest appearance saw him net his first Premier League goal for the club during the 2-0 win over Burnley, while an England under-21 call-up is also reportedly on the cards.

And now the 21-year-old has been nominated for the Premier League's player of the month award for February, having featured in all four of Newcastle's games during the month.
