Atsu’s extra-time assist sends Newcastle United into FA Cup fifth round

Atsu’s extra-time assist sends Newcastle United into FA Cup fifth round”

As revealed by Telegraph Sport previous year, the talks are complicated by the fact that Sean is also after a new deal and there is disagreement over his status, with the player's representatives claiming he should be given parity with the top earners at the club because he was linked with a £25 million move to Manchester United last summer.

Matty Longstaff, younger brother of teammate Sean, made his first-team debut against Manchester United in October and scored the winning goal.

He said: "I could play the way Norwich play quite easily but, for me, it's all about keeping the club where we need to be".

'But they've got the power these days, the players.

"Look, I set us up to play this way because I think it suits the squad and it suits the team and it suits where we are at this particular moment, and I will make no excuses for it - that we are hard to play against, hard to beat, and can we pose a threat on the counter-attack?"

After the game, the player himself tweeted "me after seeing the helicopter celebration" and a GIF of a man blinking in surprise.

The Magpies would be due a compensation package of just £400,000 should he move to a club outside the UK.

"Look, we always want to keep your best young players, especially if they're Geordies, of course", Bruce said.

Matty Longstaff's deal runs out on July 1 but Sean is now tied down to a contract until 2022.

The 19-year-old academy graduate, who scored the victor against Manchester United on his Premier League debut in October, is into the final six months of his existing deal.

His second strike for the club was also against Manchester United, the first goal in a 4-1 defeat, before he netted in the FA Cup victory over Rochdale.
