Isaac Hayden has made it clear he wants to quit Newcastle United at the end of the season. Suggesting he would consider offers from a Midlands club, as well as south.
The player handed in a transfer request back in July but this was blocked by United, who allowed the player more flexibility to travel back to London before and after games.
In an interview with the club's programme before the Crystal Palace game, Hayden spoke about the gruelling trips he had been making while commuting from London to Tyneside to play for the Magpies.
Speaking about his daughter Adriana, Hayden said: "She's a one-year-old who's used to doing five-hour journeys.
"Most one-year-olds would be kicking and screaming not happy at all.
"But she's used to doing it.
"I'm sitting here looking at her thinking this isn't fair on you anymore."
Speaking about his future, Hayden then said: "I think I've made it very clear to the club's hierarchy and the fans.
"I've got my side of the story out - I've made it pretty clear how things go.
"I don't think there'll be many questions.
"I don't think summer's going to be an issue.
"It's pretty well documented how I feel.
"But it won't change my mentality.
"When I wasn't playing, when I got sent off, when I was playing, when I was in the stands, it didn't change my mentality of training hard and doing the correct things and it never will.
"That won't change, even if I didn't play another game or kick another ball for Newcastle.
"That's just how I am."
