After Talks with Luton Town and Sheffield Wednesday, Sacha Tavolieri reports that Hayden signed a contract with Standard Liège on Sunday. He will join the Belgian club on loan with confirmation only ‘hours’ away.

“Standard and Newcastle United are finalizing the final administrative work to confirm Isaac Hayden’s loan deal,” Tavolieri tweeted. “As a reminder, the player already signed yesterday. And confirmation is expected in the coming hours.”

Howe, whose Newcastle side have now lost three top games in a row after Evan Ferguson’s reckless hat-trick at Brighton, confirmed back in May that neither Hayden nor Jeff Hendrick were part of his plans for the future.

Hendrick has since made a temporary move to Sheffield Wednesday.

“I spoke to the players last year about training outside the group. Just so I could control the numbers I was working with,” Howe said The chronicle at the beginning of summer. “Honestly, I don’t expect that to change.

“They have done a very good job and have been of great service to the football club. We definitely respect them. But sometimes you need a clear break and focus on the players who will play a role in the season.”
