Sean Longstaff says he is eyeing a more prolific season at Newcastle, with Steve Bruce keen on giving the youngster an advanced role for the 2019/20 campaign.
The midfielder has been frequently linked with Manchester United this summer - although Bruce is adamant he will not be sold and United look unlikely to pay their asking price this summer - but the 21-year-old is keen on just playing football.
As quoted by Chronicle Live, he said:
"To have your name mentioned with those top clubs is obviously great, but, for me, it’s about working as hard as I can for Newcastle and getting back.

"Like I said before, it’s all a step in the right direction.
He added: "It’s massive. When we sat down in the summer and looked at where I was at.
"I’m going in the right direction. It’s a pretty big moment.
"For me, it’s a big step in the right direction. I’m still working on bits of fitness. It’s pretty positive."
