Blackpool loanee Sean Longstaff is reportedly attracting interest from League One high flyers Scunthorpe United according to Chronicle Live.
The 20-year-old’s loan from Newcastle United to Blackpool is due to expire on January 6 but Gary Bowyer is hoping the midfielder extends his stay until the end of the season.
Longstaff has previously expressed an interest in staying at Bloomfield Road but his parent club Newcastle could have a decision to make if the Iron make a loan bid when the transfer window opens in January.
Longstaff has netted six times in 23 appearances so far this season, while also providing six assists. He actually scored against Scunthorpe on Boxing Day during Blackpool’s 3-2 defeat.
An exciting prospect, Longstaff previously gained experienced while on loan at Kilmarnock but has especially thrived at Blackpool and has certainly proved that he is capable of making an impact in League One.
Longstaff, a product of Newcastle’s academy, has yet to make his competitive senior début for The Magpies but will hope that he can force his way into the first-team if he continues to impress out on loan.
Speaking earlier this month, Bowyer told Blackpool Gazette there was a “willingness” from Longstaff and Viv Solomon-Otabor to extend their stays at the club.
“There are discussions taking place and both boys want to do it,” He said “They’ve been fantastic since they’ve been here, so hopefully we can get that sorted very quickly.”
The Iron are currently sitting in fourth place in League One, just three points off the automatic promotion places, while Blackpool have slipped down to the bottom half of the table in recent weeks.
