    Udinese offer Longstaff contract

    30,000 a week 5 year deal offered to young Matty, wonder how many others are sniffing round him. Says we'll only get 400,000 if he chooses to leave.

    Wouldn't blame him at all for leaving given the shoddy way he's been treated.

    I know mate it's embarrassing really. Shows just how badly our club is ran under Ashley. To have a first team player on 850 a week and then to offer him 15,000 for a long term deal is appalling work. Udinese are a bang average Italian team and offer him Fu(king double.

    Hes played 6 league games, so totally untested as far as im concerned - how much should he be offered?

    Maybe 15k per week then reviewed every season , or having performance based / play so many matches increases to 20k, 30k, 50k?

    What like they've reviewed the 850 he's on, have you not seen the lads raw potential to play at this level from them games? Because I have and if at his age he's showing he can handle the Prem he's worth more then 15k a week in my opinion.

    No i wouldnt say i have seen anything to say he will definitely be a premier league player in 2-3 years time, maybe he will but would need more than 6 games to base an opinion . We have had plenty of potential young players in the last few years who sadly didnt play up to their supposed potential and ended up in the championship or worse eg chopra, adam armstrong , adam campbell etc from recent years

    Its a shame that he has to leave but the offer is damn good. Not only the 30.000 week but couple million signing on fee as well. Ashley wont take the risk.

    I agree 15k sounds very fair for someone with very little premier league experience, maybe add an extension onto the contract offer if he plays 50 games then get a rise to 20k etc. I feel he is a much better player then his brother though.

    He'll leave for that money I expect be a great experience for him as well getting a different leagues style of football.

    I fully believe that Ashley and co have offered him much less than they would because they are expecting his love for the club to rule.

    I hope we keep him and i'd offered more than 15K, although I wouldn't go as high as 30K I don't think but i suspect he'll be off.

    THis should have been sorted long long ago though, shouldn't have got to this stage.

    15k a week for 5 years in today's climate for an up and coming English talent is not a good offer hence why he turned it down and a team in the bottom half of Seria A have offered double.
