Sean Longstaff burst on to the scene for his boyhood club under the keen stewardship of former manager, Rafa Benitez in our 2018/19 season.
Drawing early comparisons to Michael Carrick in terms of style, the midfielder has bags of potential combined with experience acquired through loan spells at both Kilmarnock and Blackpool.
Playing in the middle of the park he later lined up alongside his younger brother Sean Longstaff, who has since also become fully integrated within our Premier League squad.
