SEAN LONGSTAFF could be set to quit Newcastle after signing with super agent Pini Zahavi, according to reports.
Zahavi is known as ‘Mr Fix It’ and The Mail reports he is expected to try and broker his new client’s exit from St James’ Park.

The 23-year-old midfielder is still to put pen to paper on a new deal.
Longstaff first broke into the Toon first team two years ago but has not sealed his long-term future.
He signed his existing contract in 2018 when he was on the cusp of his senior debut and it runs until 2022.
But despite bursting onto the scene and causing the likes of Manchester United and England to sit up and take notice, the local lad’s form has tailed off.
Academy product Longstaff has failed to replicate his early promise under Newcastle boss Steve Bruce.
Club chiefs believe the demands of his former representatives were too high and the contract saga may have put him off his game.
The report states Longstaff has agreed a 12-month deal with Zahavi who also represents global footballing talent such as Neymar and Robert Lewandowski.
His previous arrangement with Beswicks Sports had expired.

Sources told The Mail that Pinhavi, 77, had told Longstaff’s circle that he would be able to engineer a move to Spurs.
And the Israeli is likely to restart transfer talks if Newcastle brass don’t come calling with a bumper new deal.
But the club are expected to recommence talks if Longstaff’s form continues to improve.
