After goalkeeper Tim Krul came back from the International break crocked with an elbow injury over the weekend, and he has had a scan on the elbow to assess the damage and how long he will be out for, some good news for a change today on 18 year old Rolando Aarons.
Rolando Aarons – after scoring against Crystal Palace
Rolando Aarons should be back in training again in a couple of weeks, and that’s apparently ahead of schedule although the 18 year old has already been out with a hamstring injury since the last International break, and he was injured in early September after playing for the England U20 in their 6-0 win over Romania.
He was expected to come back some time in November, and it looks like he may be ready for the home game with Liverpool on November 1st.
He came back injured after making his first appearance for any England side, and he was outstanding in pre-season and also in the 3-3 draw against Crystal Palace, when he came on as a substitute and scored a goal and made one, and almost won the game for us.
This is what a Newcastle insider has told the Chronicle:
“Rolando was gutted when he picked up the injury but is hoping to be back soon.” “He’s really missed playing and it will be a boost to have him back as an option.”
The 18-year-old winger could therefore make his return for the game with Liverpool at St James’ Park, but he will miss the next two games – at home to Leicester City on Saturday and away to Tottenham the following Sunday.
So Rolando will still have been out almost two months with an injury he picked up while on England International duty with the U20 side.
And we expect to hear the extent of the injury to Tim Krul either today or tomorrow, after he picked up an elbow injury while training with the Dutch squad last Saturday.
The next two games for Newcastle are crucial, and particularly the game at home to Leicester City, where we really have to win that game – with Tottenham away and Liverpool at home the next two games.
But this is good news for a change for Newcastle on Rolando.
