Newcastle United have completed the signing of versatile Arsenal midfielder Isaac Hayden

Newcastle United have completed the signing of Arsenal midfielder Isaac Hayden.

The 21-year-old has agreed a five-year deal at St. James' Park and has joined up with Magpies' on their training camp in Ireland.

Hayden came up through the ranks at Arsenal before making his debut in September 2013 in a League Cup tie against West Bromwich Albion.

The England Under-20 international spent last season on loan at Hull City, making 24 appearances as the Tigers won promotion from the Championship via the play-offs.

"Newcastle is a massive football club and to be given the opportunity to come here and progress my career is fantastic," said Hayden.

"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."

Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez added: "We continue with our plan to bring in players who are hungry to succeed and prove themselves, which Isaac really is.

"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."
