QPR’s transfer pursuit of Newcastle United player hits a stumbling block

QPR want to sign Newcastle United midfielder  on a permanent basis.

However, according to The Northern Echo, the London club will be unable to match his present wage deal at Newcastle, which might be a sticking point in discussions.

Isaac  Hayden played the second half of last season on loan at Loftus Road, where he helped the R’s avoid relegation to League One.
The 29-year-old played 17 Championship games for Martí Cifuentes’ team, who ended 18th overall.

He has subsequently returned to St. James’ Park, where he has two years left on his current deal.

Isaac Hayden transfer latest as QPR keen on re-signing Newcastle United man

Hayden has been with Newcastle since 2016, joining from Arsenal, but has struggled for playing time in recent seasons.

He has dropped down Eddie Howe’s squad’s pecking order and is now considered surplus to requirements as the club looks to cement its position in European play.

This might pave the way for a permanent move to QPR, but his wages are currently expected to be a sticking point in any agreement.
It was earlier rumoured that Newcastle were considering terminating his contract, which might aid the London club with the deal’s finances by eliminating the requirement for a transfer fee.

According to reports, the midfielder wants to return to Loftus Road, where he was a key member of Cifuentes’ first-team squad.

However, no agreement has been reached on potential personal terms, which are required to complete any transfer.

Hayden had previously been on loan at Standard Liege and Norwich City before joining QPR in January.
He made only 10 appearances in the Belgian Pro League throughout the first half of the season, prompting his return to English football in the new year.

QPR’s summer transfer business

QPR have already made many signings this summer, including Paul Nardi, who joined as a free agent after leaving Gent.

The 30-year-old will replace Asmir Begovic, who left the club after only one season.

Heverton and Liam Morrison have both joined QPR, as the club seeks to develop a team capable of challenging in the top half of the Championship table next season.

The Hoops have until August 30 to finalise any outstanding transfers before the year-end market closes.

Potential QPR, Isaac Hayden deal needs to be a calculated one

If Hayden is to sign for QPR on a permanent basis, the club must consider the whole financial cost before agreeing to the transfer.

Newcastle cancelling his contract, thus waiving a transfer fee, would be a good start because it might save the club a lot of money.

However, he will most certainly have to accept a significant pay reduction, as QPR should not be blowing up their salary structure to bring him in.
Hayden is a strong midfielder with plenty of Premier League experience, but he is also not worth the high price, as he is now 29.
