Spurs express interest in Newcastle midfielder
Tottenham are reportedly in the running to sign midfielder Isaac Hayden from Premier League rivals Newcastle this summer.
The 24-year-old joined Newcastle in the summer of 2016 and has emerged as a key figure in their ranks this term.
Hayden, who came through Arsenal’s academy, has rejected the offer of a new contract and appears certain to leave St James’ Park as he wants to be closer to his family in the south.
West Ham and Crystal Palace were understood to be battling it out for the £20million-rated star but they could be blown away by interest from Spurs, with Hayden likely to be interested in working under Mauricio Pochettino.
