Newcastle United midfielder Sean Longstaff is “flattered” by Manchester United’s interest in signing him.

Manchester United have been rumoured to be interested in the 21-year-old, who broke into the Newcastle team last season before injury curtailed his campaign.

The England International is still recovering from a knee problem, and was quizzed about a reported move to Old Trafford  during the Magpies’ pre-season training camp in China, per Lee Ryder of the Chronicle:

“I just keep my head down. I am just trying to get fit—that’s all I can focus on. I am still a Newcastle player.

“I want to get back on the pitch as soon as I can. That is what I am looking forward to doing. I make more and more progress every day, that’s all I look forward to. I can’t wait to get on the pitch and impress the new boss.

“…For me, it is all a positive really. It gives you even more confidence. When I was in for a short amount of time people took notice of me. It is flattering but my job is at Newcastle.”
