• ‘Sean wouldn’t look out of place with England,’ says manager
• Academy graduate has made seven appearances for Newcastle
Rafael Benítez expects Newcastle United’s young central midfielder Sean Longstaff to receive an imminent England call-up, most probably to Aidy Boothroyd’s under-21 side.
The 21-year-old academy graduate from North Shields has made only seven appearances in Benítez’s first team but is already being compared to Michael Carrick. Longstaff’s assurance on the ball, passing range and vision are currently keeping more senior midfielders, most notably Jonjo Shelvey, on the sidelines and Newcastle’s manager awaits a call from St George’s Park.
