Newcastle United journalist Liam Kennedy has been sharing his thoughts on the rumour that several other Toon players are unhappy at the club.
This comes after Kennedy recently made an appearance on NUFC Matters with Steve Wraith where the pair spoke about the biggest talking points surrounding Steve Bruce’s side.
After Wraith recently tweeted that he has heard “more rumours of an unhappy dressing room” at St. James’ Park, Kennedy had this to say on the situation and revealed that Isaac Hayden was one of several players to apparently be unhappy at the moment, which also includes the likes of Jamaal Lascelles and Allan Saint-Maximin.
He said: “We’ve all heard the rumours, any Newcastle fan worth their salt has heard the rumours; the Lascelleses, the Haydens, Saint-Maximins [are] slightly unhappy with the way things have been going.
“Look, it wouldn’t shock me if it was a really unhappy camp.”
Hayden signed to Newcastle back in the 2016 summer transfer window from fellow Premier League side Arsenal’s U23 squad for a fee of £2.61 million.
Since then, the 25-year-old, who is currently valued at £9 million, has made a total of 138 appearances for Newcastle across all competitions in which he has managed to score six goals and provide 10 assists along the way (per Transfermarkt).
Do you think Isaac Hayden is unhappy at the moment?
TIF Thoughts on Liam Kennedy’s comments on Hayden and other unhappy Newcastle players…
With Newcastle winning just one of their last five games and not scoring in either of their previous two, it is perhaps little surprise that Hayden and some other Toon players are unhappy at this moment in time.
Also, with Hayden’s performances in the seven league games he’s played for Newcastle in this campaign earning him an underwhelming season rating of 6.55/10, this could also be an indication of his apparent unhappiness.
In our view, it’s now Bruce’s job to change the unhappy mood in the dressing room at Newcastle and if the team can get a good run of performances and results under their belt, then maybe the mood will change to a more positive one.
