Newcastle complete signing of Arsenal youngster

The Magpies are continuing to bring in reinforcements ahead of the 2016-17 season, and the Arsenal starlet is their latest acquisition

Newcastle United have announced the signing of Arsenal youngster Isaac Hayden.

The versatile player who can play in defence or midfield came up through the Gunners youth system and made his debut for the north London club in 2013, before spending the 2015-16 season on-loan at Hull City. 

Speaking to the club's official website following the move, Hayden said: "Newcastle is a massive football club and to be given the opportunity to come here and progress my career is fantastic."

"Being at Arsenal was a great experience, I learnt a lot there and have a lot to thank them for, but I needed to move on and so when Newcastle came in for me I jumped at the chance.

"I am still young but I want to get as many games under my belt as I can and help the team bounce back to the Premier League."

Magpies boss Rafa Benitez has also expressed his delight at signing the youngster.

"We continue with our plan to bring in players who are hungry to succeed and prove themselves, which Isaac really is," the Spaniard said. 

"He is also a player who can play in different positions, which is very useful.

"Isaac is a young, strong English player with fantastic potential but also with some experience already of the Championship. We welcome him to the Club."
