Newcastle United midfielder Matty Longstaff is reportedly wanted on loan by a host of clubs for next season.
According to the Chronicle, the Magpies will receive several loan offers for the 19-year-old in the summer.
The report details the teenager is ready to go out on loan in search of first-team action and Bradford City are leading the hunt for his signature.
It is understood that Newcastle rejected loan offers in January from Bury and Falkirk, but could now see him try continue his development elsewhere.
Longstaff is a defensive midfielder that is a regular in the Under-23s, but is yet to make a first senior appearance.
His brother, Sean, broke into the first team this campaign at St James’ Park after coming through he academy and he should be looking to follow in his footsteps.
Longstaff is set to have a list of suitors chasing him in the summer and a taste of senior football will help his development massively.
He needs more experience to convince Rafael Benitez that he’s ready for a senior promotion and a stint in the lower leagues will help.
Sean Longstaff benefited from loan spells with Kilmarnock and Blackpool to help learn his trade, which eventually catapulted him into the position he is now.
Newcastle do have a number of talented individuals in their youth ranks and they could save the club a lot of money in the long run.
