Former Arsenal youngster staying in the north east

Luton boss Rob Edwards has confirmed his efforts to sign Newcastle United midfielder Isaac Hayden have come to an end after being unable to agree a deal with the former England youth international.

The 28-year-old, who came through the academy at Arsenal, had played over 150 times for the Magpies after moving to St James’ Park in July 2016 for a fee of around £2.5m.

Allowed to leave the north east by United boss Eddie Howe this season, there were strong rumours that he was on his way to Kenilworth Road, with a loan move in place.

However, that now won’t be happening, as asked about any potential transfer this evening, Edwards said: “We couldn’t quite agree a deal unfortunately.

"He’s someone we had a look at, clearly, there was interest.

"He’s a good player but unfortunately we couldn’t quite agree a deal.

“We can have a look and see what else we can do in the next couple of days.”
