Nick Hammond knows ‘brilliant’. The 26-year-old might help Leeds United pull off his signing

Leeds United are reportedly interested in signing Newcastle United player Sean Longstaff this summer, and his friendship with Longstaff could be important in luring him to Elland Road.

Sean Longstaff

The 26-year-old has been a regular in Newcastle‘s midfield three this season, albeit you might say that is due to injuries and Sandro Tonali‘s suspension. The Toon have a lot of talent in the centre.

Bruno Guimaraes, Joe Willock, Joelinton, Lewis Miley, and others. With everyone available, Longstaff is unlikely to make the starting XI. His contract at Newcastle expires in June 2025.

So Leeds are connected with a £15 million deal for Longstaff. Given Newcastle’s £50 million valuation of the midfielder in 2019, this may be a bargain for him. TeamTalk provides a little additional information about the probable relocation.

Indeed, they believe Nick Hammond, the club’s current sporting director, might play an important role. More particular, his friendship with Longstaff and Newcastle may be crucial to a deal.

Nick Hammond’s relationship with Sean Longstaff helps Leeds deal.

After the Saudi acquisition, Hammond spent six months at Newcastle, during which time Longstaff signed a three-year contract extension. Hammond will have played a big role in this, so he clearly values him.

According to reports, Daniel Farke understands that his team requires Premier League quality, which Longstaff might provide. Whether he will be persuaded by Leeds this summer remains to be seen.

Longstaff has consistently played for a team vying for European qualification and the Champions League, and he has been rated as “brilliant” by Jamie Carragher. Would he wish to join a newly promoted team?
