Isaac Hayden arrived in the North East relatively under the radar.
During his time at the club, the tenacious midfielder has emerged as a key figure in our squad, offering defensive rigidity in the middle of the park.
The former Arsenal man has been open about his personal circumstances and search of a new club, however in true dedication to his values the professionalism within his game has never wavered.
In what can be the highest credit to Hayden, the fact he has not received an England call-up still baffles the majority of people living in Newcastle.
