Top Players Drawing Interest From Several Clubs – As Newcastle Once Again In Limbo

As we all await any real news on the vital talks ongoing between owner Mike Ashley and Rafa Benitez the Chronicle is reporting today that West Ham are interested in two of our central midfield players, who may both leave the club this summer.

Isaac Hayden handed in a transfer request last summer, and he still wants to move south to be closer to his fiance and daughter – so we suppose he will leave the club this summer.

But we’d really still like to see him stay if there’s any way to work out his family situation – but maybe not.

Isaac Hayden – we still hope we can keep him

West Ham United are interested in both Isaac and Jonjo Shelvey who may no longer be a regular starter at Newcastle with the rapid emergence of young Sean Longstaff last season.

West Ham wanted to sign Jonjo in January for £20M, but they may now turn their attention to Hayden who has been outstanding for us since December.

There could be considerable changes in Newcastle’s engine room this summer with Mo Diame becoming a free agent who will also leave the club this summer.

But both Hayden’s and Shelvey’s future are in limbo until we know the outcome of the contract talks that have been going on for five years nine days since last Thursday.

There is great interest in both central midfielders with Brighton and even Aston Villa interested in Hayden.

We assume the location of the club is vital so a West Ham move would suit Hayden’s requirements – as would Brighton – where he would be an instant starter in the team.

But as we said earlier things are in limbo once again at Newcastle.

At some point, Mike Ashley has to make a decision on Rafa, so things can get moving again.

It looks like any quick signings this summer are another pipe dream for the club.

Comments welcome.

    Funny how there’s comparison between spurs and Newcastle.
    Swiss ramble did just that comparing the two clubs and their different fortunes since mike Ashley took over.

    Correct me if I’ve misread the post but is OLG honestly claiming to have friends in the Middle East who are now aware of our position regarding being up for sale? Fair enough if he meant his meant John who lives in Dubai but doesn’t really follow NUFC news that much and OLG told him the other day that we’re up for sale, however if he’s now claiming to know oil rich billionaires who are thinking of buying the club then for the love of gawd does that not throw in to doubt the stories of Irish horse families who if you just spell the middle bit of their name and add it to the anagram of the title of the b side of Cat Stevens ”I love my dog” then it will give you the answer to who he has been on the phone to, just type in Morse Jib if that’s who you think it is!!!
