Ki Sung-yueng picked up a hamstring injury in South Korea’s 1-0 win over the Philippines in Group C of the Asian Cup this week.
It’s said to only be a slight injury.
Jonjo Shelvey will be in Barcelona this week checking on his thigh injury with a specialist after it seems to flare up when he plays, and he’s had the injury over two months now.
And Mo Diame picked up a knock and is nursing what is hopefully only a minor problem.
But with that background, it would seem to be ludicrous to allow Isaac Hayden to leave the club this month.
IsaaHaydenen – will stay until the summer?
He still wants away and both Leeds United and West Brom in the Championship are keen on taking him.
Isaac put in a transfer request and wants to leave for family reasons.
Rafa rates the central midfielder who is a technically gifted player and doesn’t want to lose him – especially halfway through what is another relegation fighting season for Newcastle.
We are so sick of Newcastle fighting relegation and this is the fourth PL season running we have been fighting against relegation.
Hayden has only made nine appearances so far this season but he has featured in each of the last four matches.
Rafa will have to let Hayden leave but that is likely to be in the summer when Newcastle can bring in a replacement for the former Arsenal player.
What do you think?
