Sean Longstaff included as Newcastle name pre-season tour squad

Newcastle United have included Sean Longstaff in the pre-season tour squad.

The Magpies travel to Asia, where they will compete in the Premier League Asia Trophy.

Longstaff has been linked with a move to Manchester United but makes the trip nonetheless.

Widespread reports on Friday morning claim Newcastle have demanded £50m for the midfielder.

Longstaff broke into the team under Rafa Benítez last season and impressed in eight Premier League starts before injury cut his season short.

Newcastle, currently without a manager, face Wolves on Wednesday.
