Losing Isaac Hayden is starting to look like it'll be a huge blow to Newcastle United

Isaac Hayden arrives for the Premier League Match between Newcastle United and Leicester City at St.James' Park on September 29, 2018, in Newcastle upon Tyne, England.

Newcastle United midfielder Isaac Hayden has suggested he still wants to leave St. James' Park recently.

The impending loss of Isaac Hayden at Newcastle United is looking more and more damaging after his recent performances.

Hayden has come out in the Chronicle and suggested that he wants to leave Newcastle in the summer, even though he is playing more regularly for Rafael Benitez’s side.

The central midfielder is keen for a move south for personal reasons, and Newcastle are expected to sanction a deal.

 

However, Benitez’s side really are going to miss Hayden and his performances in recent weeks have proven just how valuable he is.

The 24-year-old has been a powerful presence in Newcastle’s midfield, during a productive spell of form for the Magpies.

Hayden’s combative performances have meant that Newcastle have not been hurt by the loss of numerous central midfielders through injury.

And, if Hayden does leave St. James’ Park in the summer, then he is going to be very hard to replace - especially if Benitez isn’t given a big budget to spend.
