Matty Longstaff has joined Mansfield Town on loan for the rest of the season

The Stags, whose squad includes former Magpies midfielder James Perch, are currently sixth in League Two under Nigel Clough.

Former England under-20 international Longstaff has made 20 appearances for the Magpies - 14 of them in the Premier League - and spent the first part of the season on loan with Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen.

The 21-year-old progressed through the ranks with his boyhood club and burst onto the scene with the winner against Manchester United on his Premier League debut in October 2019 - one of three goals he scored in his breakthrough campaign.

He made only five appearances last term following a long-term injury but signed a contract extension at St. James' Park in the summer before moving to Aberdeen.
