The Toon Tribune: Why Rolando Aarons will benefit from his loan sojourns

Newcastle United midfielder Rolando Aarons completed a surprise loan move to Czech club FC Slovan Liberec last week.

The move came after Aarons was not included in United’s 25-man squad and thus prompted the young winger to seek gametime elsewhere.

Aarons began his career at hometown club Bristol City, plying his trade in their youth team for three years before being released in 2012. Following this, he immediately joined Newcastle’s academy and signed his first professional contract in 2014.

After a bright start to his career, including scoring and assisting in his third appearance (a 3-3 draw at home to Crystal Palace), as well as in a League Cup victory at Manchester City, Aarons’ Magpies career has been hampered by injuries. He has since made only 22 league appearances for the Club, netting twice.

Aarons is a tricky winger, blessed with pace and the ability to beat a man, while the Geordie faithful were delighted with such a prospect playing at St James’ Park during his breakthrough season.

At 22 years old, the forward has the prime of his career ahead of him, while loan moves such as this as well as last season’s move to Hellas Verona will only allow the youngster to improve.

Aarons is determined to succeed at Newcastle United, as seen on his social media, while the Magpies faithful are in the same position.
