Sky Sports Report Isaac Hayden To Sign 5 Year Newcastle Deal

4:41 pm, Saturday, July 9th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 13 Comments

News coming through – Sky Sports are reporting that Issac Hayden will sign a five year permanent deal at Newcastle for £2.5M.

While we all knew a deal was pending for Isaac, it wasn’t clear whether it would be a permanent deal or a one year loan deal.

But it looks like Newcastle have beaten at least Hull City and maybe a number of other clubs to the signing of the the highly-rated 21 year-old Arsenal defender.

Isaac Hayden – soon to be Newcastle player

We didn’t fancy  a loan deal and have Rafa make Isaac into a much better player and then have the 21 year-old return to Arsenal, so this is a great deal for Newcastle United.

Rafa obviously thinks this lad can become some player for Newcastle United.

If confirmed this would be Newcastle’s 5th signing of the summer with Newcastle also having lodged a third bid – said to be £4M – for Blackburn defender Grant Hanley.

Comments welcome.

    Lee Ryder – Verified account ?@lee_ryder

    Issac Hayden coming in as holding midfielder so #nufc definitely still in market for centre-back.

    So would that mean tiote is leaving or maybe might use Anita as right back for cover and competition.

    Hanley won’t play any part in Rovers game in Austria today,apparently he picked up a knee injury in training yesterday. Maybe he’s saying his goodbyes,why travel if he’s injured???

    How many defensive midfielders have we got.

    Tiote
    Colback
    Shelvey
    Anita
    Saviet
    Haynes

    Ones about to be going surly.

    Quite a few Gunners are saying this lad has masses of potential, let’s hope they are right.
    Does this mean Mr T is the next one out of the club!!

    Welsh shelvey is not a defensive midfielder possibly a deeper playmaker than a cam would be but certainly not a sit back and win the ball type.

    Saying that I do agree we have a lot however Tiote will definately leave

  • 7 SPRINGY // Jul 9, 2016 at 4:59 PM

    the rumours are that saviet is on his way,tiote always linked away,haynes,dont know anything about and shelvey is more forward thinking….anita and colback liekly to be squad fillers.

  • 8 welshgeordie9 // Jul 9, 2016 at 5:01 PM

    I think there is one person who will be staying because there’s been no rumours about him leaving since the season has ended and that’s shelvey.

  • 9 welshgeordie9 // Jul 9, 2016 at 5:05 PM

    Now the fun begins for us getting a forward in, watch us being linked with and Ed bring up his favourite topic up……….. Charlie Austin.

    Sorry guys for bringing his name up.

    Would anyone have Big Andy back.

  • 11 kakaobi // Jul 9, 2016 at 5:13 PM

    Really good question about big Andy last season is have said no but think he’d be really good for us now so yeah I’d have him back or someone similar to him

  • 12 ZIPPIE57 // Jul 9, 2016 at 5:56 PM

    Saivet can go panic buy

    Andy Carroll is a perma crock! Always injured for West Ham ffs!! Why do people keep forgetting that? He’s of no use in the treatment table.
