Newcastle United midfielder Isaac Hayden is said to be unsettled on Tyneside, as his future at the club becomes more and more uncertain.
Despite producing consistently impressive displays for the club in the middle of the pack for Steve Bruce’s side, the former Hull City man is keen to leave the club in the near future.
According to the Chronicle, is believed to be ‘unsettled’ on Tyneside ahead of the summer transfer window – a window in which Matty and Sean Longstaff may also leave St. James’ Park.
As was the case in the summer of 2018 – when the Englishman sought for a move further south – Hayden is said to be unhappy in his current situation. Despite linking up with his former Hull manager again, it has seemingly not quelled the discontent that has rumbled for the past 18 months or so.
To Hayden’s credit, his on field performances have not suffered in that period. With 114 appearances since 2016, and as a crucial part of Newcastle’s promotion back into the Premier League, few can doubt his loyalty to the cause.
This season in particular has seen the 25-year-old shine at St. James’ Park, with the former Arsenal man snatching a late winner against Chelsea back in February. While the club have not been particularly entertaining to watch this season, Hayden has epitomised the dogged nature which has led Newcastle to 13th in the table.
Although there is no certainty that he will go, for the Magpies’ fans it would be disappointing to see their man leave. However, few could begrudge him after his dedicated performances, particularly if he is able to solidify another season in the top tier for his club before he goes.
