The 20-year-old, who can play both as a central defender and as a defensive midfielder, featured for the Gunners in the pre-season friendly competition.
Hayden is happy to have won the tournament and is pleased to have got some playing time.
First-team breakthrough on the cards?
Hayden is a highly-rated young prospect, but he has yet to feature in the Premier League for Arsenal.
The youngster remains part of the Gunners team for now, but one should not be surprised if he is sent out on loan to get first-team experience.
Arsenal have a hugely competitive squad, and Hayden is unlikely to establish himself in the first team.
The youngster could get chances from time to time in the upcoming 2015-16 season, but perhaps it is time for him to get more playing time and feature in competitive games.
