NEWCASTLE'S Andy Carroll and defender Javier Manquillo have agreed new contracts which will see them remain at the club beyond the end of the current season.

In addition, 20-year-old midfielder Matty Longstaff has agreed a short-term extension to his existing deal, which was due to expire at the end of this month, with the Magpies still attempting to persuade him to commit his future to the club amid interest from Serie A side Udinese.

A statement confirming another 12 months for Carroll, who rejoined his former club on an incentivised deal last summer, and four years for Manquillo, said: “Newcastle United have agreed new contracts with Javier Manquillo and Andy Carroll.

“Former Atletico Madrid defender Manquillo has signed a four-year deal, having become an increasingly important part of Steve Bruce’s team this term, and Carroll, who rejoined his boyhood club last summer, has penned a one-year extension.”

Longstaff, whose longer-term future remains uncertain, joins loan signings Danny Rose and Nabil Bentaleb in extending for the remainder of the campaign, while Inter Milan winger Valentino Lazaro is expected to formally follow suit within days after reaching an agreement in principle with his parent club.

Bruce said: “I’m really pleased that we have been able to put these extensions in place and I’d like to thank the players for committing themselves to the club with some very important games left to play.

“We have been proactive in trying to reach these agreements and they will give us the best chance of finishing the season as strongly as possible.

“I’m delighted Javier Manquillo and Andy Carroll have extended their contracts longer term.

“They have both made important contributions this season and I’m really pleased we can continue to call on them beyond the summer.”

Rob Elliot, Jack Colback and Jamie Sterry will leave the club when their contracts run out on June 30.
