Newcastle United midfielder Sean Longstaff admits there is little h can do amid continued speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a huge fan of the 21-year-old.  However, upon preparing an opening £20million bid for Longstaff, United learned that Newcastle ’s valuation was more than double that figure – at a whopping £50million.

Speaking about the transfer talk surrounding him in recent months, Longstaff said: “Obviously, I’m still young and getting used to all that side of it. There’s nothing you can do. It’s in the hands of other people now. Like I said before, I’m fully focused on being back fit for the start of the Premier League season.

“To have your name mentioned with those top clubs is obviously great, but, for me, it’s about working as hard as I can for Newcastle and getting back. I’m trying to focus on football. The stuff off the pitch isn’t what you play for, you can get too caught up in it.”
