Arsenal supporters appear to be disappointed that the club has sold Isaac Hayden to Newcastle United.

Hayden has penned a five-year deal at St. James’ Park, as Newcastle look to bolster their squad for next season.

The 20-year-old has not quite broken through at Arsenal yet, but Gunners fans were encouraged by his future prospects.

Many Arsenal supporters appear to feel that Hayden would have developed into a first-team player at the Emirates Stadium and they have expressed their disappointment about him leaving.

Hayden has limited first team experience at the moment, but Rafael Benitez has seen enough promise in the midfielder to suggest he could have an exciting future on Tyneside.

Hayden has previously had Championship experience, while playing for Hull City last season.

Hayden is Newcastle’s fifth signing of the summer so far - following on from the additions of Jesus Gamez, Dwight Gayle, Matz Sels and Matt Ritchie.

Newcastle are currently the heavy favourites to win the Championship next campaign.
