Newcastle United could open its doors wide for both Sean Longstaff and Freddie Woodman to depart for Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic side.
According to recent report by the Chronicle, Brendan Rodgers are eyeing up a move for both Sean Longstaff and Freddie Woodman from Newcastle United.
Woodman and Longstaff are considered to be two of Newcastle’s brightest prospects, but have recorded little game time under Rafael Benitez.
And Celtic are now believed to be monitoring the duo, as the Scottish giants consider a deal.
Celtic sent scouts to watch both Longstaff and Woodman during Newcastle’s under-23 side’s last match.
If Celtic were to sign Longstaff and Woodman the duo could strengthen Rodgers’ squad for the second half of the season.
Longstaff’s contract expires in 2019, meaning Celtic would only have to pay compensation to take him from the Magpies, if they did sign him on a pre-contract agreement in January.
Longstaff is a midfielder, who has shown a knack for scoring during loan spells.
Woodman, meanwhile, would reduce the average age of Celtic’s goalkeeping options and could turn out to be a long-term successor for Craig Gordon.
