Newcastle United have announced the signing of Arsenal’s 21-year-old centre-back, Isaac Hayden. The England international has penned a five-year deal with the Toons. Born to a Jamaican mother and an English father, Hayden made his full debut for Arsenal on 25 September 2013 playing in midfield in a League Cup third round game against West Bromwich Albion. He started the match and was substituted after 84 minutes for Kris Olsson; Arsenal won on penalties. On 23 September 2014, Hayden made his second appearance for Arsenal, playing at centre back in another League Cup third round game, a 1–2 home defeat against Southampton. On 31 July 2015, Hayden joined Hull City on a season-long loan to gain first team experience. Hayden made his debut for the club on the opening day of the 2015–16 season in a 2–0 home win to Huddersfield Town. Hayden opened his account when he scored the final goal for Hull in the 6–0 defeat of Charlton Athletic on 16 January 2016.
