Steve Bruce addresses 'ongoing' contract talks at Newcastle United

Newcastle United are looking to secure more players on new contracts – after Matty Longstaff committed his future to the club.

Longstaff, 20, yesterday signed a new two-year deal at St James’s Park after a breakthrough in long-running talks with managing director Lee Charnley.

And the club is also looking to address the contractual situations of Isaac Hayden and Federicio Fernandez as they enter the final year of their deals. DeAndre Yedlin is also out of contract next summer.

Asked about contracts, head coach Steve Bruce said: “Look, that’s going to be ongoing. I haven’t spoken to Lee in that respect.

"I think what we’re trying to do now is concentrate on who we can bring into the club. Those players are still contracted to us, and we’ll see. At the minute we’re concentrating on what we can do to bring a little bit of quality to the squad.”
