NewcastleWorld takes a look at the deadline day business Newcastle United could do.

Newcastle United might not make any new signings following Sandro Tonali, Harvey Barnes, Tino Livramento and Lewis Hall this summer but they still have work to do in terms of outgoings.

The Magpies still have two high-earners to get off the wage bill. Here, NewcastleWorld takes a look at the deadline day business that could happen.

Isaac Hayden to Sheffield Wednesday

The midfielder was at Sheffield Wednesday’s training ground last night undergoing a medical ahead of joining the Championship club on a season-long loan. Hayden was initially expected to link up with Premier League newboys Luton Town earlier in the week but the move fell through.

The 28-year-old, who has three years remaining on his current contract, was frozen out of Eddie Howe’s first-team plans last summer. He spent last season at Norwich City but missed out on a permanent move after the Canaries failed win immediate promotion back to the Premier League.

Hayden has made 171 appearances for the Magpies since arriving from Arsenal in 2016 and is fondly remembered for helping the club lift the Championship title under Rafa Benitez during his debut season.

Jeff Hendrick to the Championship

Hendrick could join Hayden at Hillsborough after the Owls submitted a loan proposal for both players. Similar to Hayden, the Republic of Ireland international has been training away from Howe’s first-team since returning from last season’s loan spell at Reading.

The 31-year-old moved to St James’ Park following his release from Burnley in 2020 and has gone on to make 27 appearances and scoring three goals. His contract expires at the end of the campaign having last featured for United in December 2021.

He is reportedly also attracting interest from other clubs such as Leeds United, West Bromwich Albion and Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen.

Sources in the Netherlands over the last 24 hours claim negotiations are ongoing which will likely see Lucas De Bolle join the Feyenoord’s under-21s team on a season-long loan. His current contract is due to expire next summer.

The 20-year-old, who was born in Scotland to a Belgian father and an English mother, joined the Magpies’ academy in 2015 but is yet to make a competitive first-team appearance, despite featuring on the bench and in friendlies on the odd occasion.

His proposed move to Feyenoord will strengthen the ties between both clubs. Earlier in the summer, Newcastle signed Yankuba Mintehn from Danish side Odense Boldklub for £7million before immediately loaning the 19-year-old Gambian winger to the Rotterdam-based outfit.

Ones to watch: Javier Manquillo & Matt Targett

Although unlikely at this late stage, it’s worth bearing in mind Javier Manquillo and Matt Targett’s situations.

Manquillo has fallen further down the pecking order this summer following the arrivals of England under-21s duo Tino Livramento and Lewis Hall. The Spaniard was already behind the likes of Kieran Trippier, Matt Targett and Dan Burn.

The 29-year-old endured a deeply frustrating campaign last time out - managing just six appearances in total - and missed the latter part of pre-season due to a groin issue. He’s understood to have attracted interest from La Liga clubs.

Meanwhile, Newcastle were contacted by Nottingham Forest and Fulham this week in regards to Matt Targett’s availability but those advances were rejected, despite NewcastleWorld’s understanding that the 27-year-old is open to leaving having become frustrated with his lack of game time.

After arriving permanently from Aston Villa last summer, Targett began last term as Howe’s first-choice left-back but a frustrating start with a leg injury and then illness allowed Burn to make the spot his own. As a result, the player has made just two Premier League starts since September.
