Isaac Hayden now the latest to suffer from Mike Ashley’s shambolic summer..

As confirmed by the Chronicle, Isaac Hayden will be part of the Newcastle United squad that travel to China this weekend – with his much needed move away being put on hold once again.

This comes OVER a year on from the midfielder’s transfer request, with him confirming last summer that he needed to leave and return to his family down south for personal reasons.

In the mean time he has carried himself admirably, both on and off the pitch, but THREE transfer windows later and Mike Ashley’s incompetence and total neglect of Newcastle United has meant a move away has still not been sanctioned.

Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to see him stay, but Hayden himself admitted a few months ago that there was a verbal agreement between himself and the club – suggesting he would be allowed to leave once a replacement arrived.

The Chronicle claim that the 24-year-old had made it ‘abundantly clear’ to Lee Charnley that he must move on for family reasons – yet they state his wish is no closer to being granted, despite interest from Watford.

As a result, he looks set to be in the Newcastle squad that take on Wolverhampton Wanderers in the first game of Premier League’s Asia Trophy next Wednesday.

The piece insists that Hayden could still leave the club following the seemingly imminent appointment of Steve Bruce.

The 58-year-old will no doubt be keen to keep him, with him working with Hayden during his loan spell at Hull a few years ago and reluctant to lose another key member of our threadbare squad, but it seems wrong to stand in his way if there is an agreement and a replacement can be lined up.

  1. i HOPE it was Rafa who said to Isaac Haden that he could leave because if fatty said so Haden should have known this would be a lie as Fatty has been proven to be a lier on court with Kevin Keegan


  2. As much as I feel for Hayden, sometimes in life you have to be away from your loved ones to earn a crust, I travel 5,000 Miles to my job and I’m away a month at a time, just because your on £50k a week he still has a signed contract to honour, if the Toon can’t afford to loose him he has to bit his lip and get on with it, and another thing I would be a 100% sure that we have the same medical help somewhere in the North East even privately medical the money he is on, and money should be no object when it comes to your loved ones
