Stags land Newcastle midfielder

31 January 2022

Mansfield Town are delighted to announce the signing of Newcastle United midfielder Matty Longstaff on loan until the end of the season.

A product of the Newcastle United academy, Matty joins the Stags with good pedigree having scored twice for the Toon in 14 Premier League appearances.

The 21-year-old made his debut for the Magpies in August 2019 against Leicester City in the EFL Cup.

Two months later, the midfielder secured a Premier League Goal of the Month award for an outstanding strike against Manchester United at St. James’ Park.

Matty scored against the Red Devils for a second time in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford.

The Rotherham-born maestro signed a contract extension with Newcastle at the end of the 19-20 season, playing alongside his older brother Sean.

In August 2021, Matty joined Aberdeen on loan. After five appearances with the Dons, he returned to Newcastle.

“To get a good midfielder with Premier League experience is a coup for us,” Stags’ boss Nigel Clough.

“We’re looking forward to working with Matty and get him playing some regular football.

“Having let Harry Charsley go to Port Vale, it’s a good reinforcement for us in the midfield area.”
