Manchester United have begun talks to sign Newcastle United midfielder Sean Longstaff, according to reports.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are in the market to sign a replacement for Ander Herrera, who will leave the club this summer on a free transfer and is expected to join Paris Saint-Germain.

And Solskjaer is keen to rebuild his United squad by signing talented, homegrown players.

According to the Daily Mail, United have now held ‘initial discussions’ over a potential deal for Longstaff, who is on Solskjaer’s summer shortlist.

The 21-year-old came through Newcastle’s academy and was given his senior debut by Rafa Benitez in December.

The midfielder, who has also spent time on loan at Kilmarnock and Blackpool, made 11 appearances for Newcastle this season before his campaign was cut short in March after he suffered a knee ligament injury.

Speaking earlier this season about Longstaff’s development, Benitez admitted he was impressed with the midfielder’s application in training.

‘He’s a lad who can be quite shy, but he’s very mature,’ said the Newcastle manager.
