Newcastle Confirm New Contracts for Andy Carroll and Javier Manquillo

Newcastle have announced that Andy Carroll and Javier Manquillo have agreed new contracts, while youngster Matty Longstaff has penned a short-term extension until the end of the season.

The trio's deals were set to expire on 30 June but all will now remain at St James Park until the end of the 2019/20 Premier League campaign.

Carroll rejoined his boyhood club last summer and has made 15 appearances this season, racking up five assists, including one in the Magpies' recent 1-1 draw with Aston Villa. He has signed a one-year extension to his current deal.

Right-back Manquillo, meanwhile, arrived in 2017 from Atletico Madrid after previous enjoying loan spells at English sides Liverpool and Sunderland. The Spaniard has played 15 games this season and has penned terms until 2024 at the club.

Meanwhile, Longstaff - who has been linked with a move away from the north east recently - has also agreed to remain a Magpie until the end of the season at least, while Danny Rose and Nabil Bentaleb have extended their loan deals.
