The summer signing was crucial in the Magpies' fightback against Doncaster Rovers.
George Boyd and Isaac Hayden in action
Newcastle new boy Isaac Hayden has sent a message to the Magpies faithful after impressing in yesterday’s friendly with Doncaster Rovers.
The summer signing produced an all-action display after coming on at half-time and was one of the main catalysts behind his team’s comeback. He took to Twitter to share this message earlier today:
Hayden came close to scoring a second and spent the last portion of the game at centre-back, making a couple of crucial interceptions and showcasing his versatility.

It’s clear to see why Benitez sanctioned the signing of the former Arsenal man and he will be expected to play a big role in the Magpies’ hunt for promotion next season.
The 21-year old looks a strong candidate to fill the void left by Georginio Wijnaldum in the heart of midfield, with the Dutchman due to complete a move to Liverpool imminently – according to Sky Sports.
