By Amir Mr
Newcastle confirmed the signing of Arsenal youngster Isaac Hayden on Monday morning – and the news excited their fans on Twitter.
As reported by Football Insider, Hayden has penned a five-year contract with Newcastle after completing a transfer that will reportedly cost £2.5million.
The 21-year-old has Championship experience after making 24 appearances for Hull last season as they won promotion via the play-offs.
The club’s supporters on Twitter were extremely pleased with the signing and the club’s overall transfer dealings this summer.
Many are optimistic for the season ahead, as they feel manager Rafa Bentiez has added much needed hunger and determination to the side.
One supporter hoped that the club does not ruin the youngster’s potential as they have done in the past, but with Bentiez on board the fan was confident he can help him develop in the correct manner.
Here are the reactions of the supporters on Twitter:
Rafa is signing players with a hunger to perform for #nufc. We are finally going to get a squad who want the club to succeed.

I hope Hayden doesn't join the long list of young hot prospects we've ruined over the years. Altho they didn't have Rafa behind them #nufc
