NEWCASTLE UNITED have reportedly rejected a bid from Everton for Sean Longstaff.
The 24-year-old is out of contract at St. James’ Park in June and is yet to agree to an extension.
That has sparked the interest of Toffees boss Rafa Benitez.
The Spaniard gave the midfielder his Premier League debut for the Magpies two years again.
Now he is allegedly attempting to reunite with Longstaff at Goodison Park, according to reports.
The Shields Gazette claims that Everton ‘tabled an offer’ for him last week.
But it was instantly knocked back by Newcastle.
Eddie Howe wants to keep hold of the starlet and still hopes to convince him to stay in the North East.

The Toon manager said recently: “He can show to me and the club he has a long-term future here.

Meanwhile, Newcastle fans did receive a boost this morning when Howe completed his first signing since taking charge.
The club announced the £12m arrival of England international full-back Kieran Trippier from Atletico Madrid.
