North Shields-born Sean usually plays in the number ten role behind a striker, but is also capable of playing in a deeper-lying position in midfield.
He made his Under-18 debut against Arsenal in April 2014 and has progressed quickly since then, first stepping up to the Under-21s for a Northumberland Senior Cup tie with Team Northumbria in which he entered the fray as a substitute and grabbed a hat-trick.
After returning to Tyneside, his signature was in demand once again and he signed for Blackpool on loan at the start of the 2017/18 campaign.
Scoring nine times in League One, he was given a chance in pre-season by Rafa Benítez in the following pre-season campaign and scored against St. Patrick's Athletic in United's opening friendly.
He made his competitive first team debut against Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup in August 2018.
