Loads of Newcastle fans are begging Isaac Hayden to stay at the club after he gave a revealing interview to The Evening Chronicle.
Hayden’s season has been quite the redemption story. If truth be told, few would have expected him to ever make a real mark in the Premier League.
The midfielder looked every bit of the Championship player he was signed to be, struggling to bridge the gap in quality to the top flight.

Since January though, when he openly admitted he wants to leave the club due to personal reasons, he has been sensational, forming a brilliant midfield pairing with Sean Longstaff until the youngster got injured.
The 24 year-old is now one of the first names on the team-sheet, and his comments about the club’s ambitions, or lack thereof, have only further endeared him to the Toon Army.
“A club of this stature, the target shouldn’t be just to finish above the relegation zone but at the minute that is where we’re at,” he said.
“We have to deal with that as players, coaching staff and as fans who support the football club but that isn’t the ambition in the dressing room.”
That is exactly what fans on Tyneside want to hear from their players, and the interview has been met with dozens of comments begging the Englishman to stay on Tyneside.
Take a look at the Twitter reactions down below…
#NUFC should do all they can to keep Hayden at the club. Unfortunately they won't, as all they'll see is the chance to turn a profit.

We need the club to just fund the cost for Newcastle hospital to treat his child/family, gutted if he goes, Him & Longstaff could have been a massive partnership for the now and future
