Magpies Need To Sign Youngster To New Deal Quickly


The Sunday Times is reporting today that top clubs Manchester City and Liverpool are keen to sign 18 year-old winger Rolando Aarons from Newcastle – and it looks like the first professional contract he signed last March was only for one year.

Rolando Aarons

Rolando Aarons – in action against Liverpool

The report is in the Sunday Times, but next June Rolando would not become a free agent as such, because some compensation would have to be paid for him as a youngster who has come through the Newcastle Academy.

And if Newcastle and the buying club cannot agree on a fee  – it would be sent to an independent tribunal.

But of course we don’t want Rolando to leave Newcastle, and therefore we are hoping that Lee Charnley in particular – will be giving Aarons a longer term contract very soon.

At the very least that will protect Newcastle’s investment in the player – and if he does become too good for Newcastle in the future, and that could happen with this lad and he moves on to a bigger club, then at least we’ll get a decent fee for him.

Rolando is currently out injured with a hamstring injury, and it’s the same one he first picked up some months ago, so it will be important that he’s fully fit before he’s brought back this time.

One thing that worries us is that Liverpool and Manchester City may have let his agent know they are interested in signing him, and that could sway his thinking – or at least the agent’s thinking that he could get a big pay-day.

But Rolando should know he will get a lot more first team games at Newcastle,  than he would get at any of those two bigger clubs.

Sign him up Newcastle.

    If the club started talking to the media again we’d get more info on injuries etc.

    It’s hard not to be suspicious at most stories that come from the club .

    WTF!!!

    The club only talks to press post and pre EPL match, anything else is club propoganda.

    We only know about Abeids broken toe because he broke the news, we know a little on Curtis Goode because the Australian papers reported on him reference international team.
    Any news on Santon?

    So Pardew says Colo should be back for Qpr, and I’m not meant to be suspicious?

    Pardew the man who played Aaron’s and Cisse against medical advice because he knew better, ye of I’ll trust his judgement on injuries.
    As beer pointed out before the clubs official site isn’t even up to date with injuries.

    Lets tie him down with a massive Buy out clause!

    Also lets give R.Taylor and Jonas a year extension! They show sooo much love and passion for the club which could be invaluable if they can pass it off to the new players!

    lets not forget they have recalled streete from his loan a month early
    why do that unless there is something wrong with at least 2 players
    there was nothing wrong with the loan they just extended

    Ed, what’s with the “If he becomes too big for Newcastle” spiel?? Is that even possible?? lol

    NUFC should already be in negotiations to ensure it simply doesn’t happen – isnt that why we have Mr “Team–sheet” Charnley in charge??

    How have the doom merchants got them sold off?

    Their current situation is something NUFC would exploit in a heartbeat if they weren’t already ours. Showing a bit concern over their contracts is justified with form they’ve shown recently.

    We’ve done it to enough other clubs someone will return the favour eventually.

    That’s crazy, why sell off our best two player youth players to come through for many years. How much would it cost to replace them?? A lot more than than Mashley tight budget

    Pessimistic, your one of the worst doomsayers on here along with the gaol, whinger, every day the club is in crisis according to you and him.@10 no one mentioned selling anyone, just Sissoko, would be the one that other clubs are watching!

    I think the club will be wary of handing out big contracts to youths after getting their fingers burned with Fergusson, Ranger and Vuckic. When it comes to losing money, you don’t see Ashley repeating mistakes without caution

    Sissoko looked rubbish until he got played in his natural position. Now he looks capable of playing at a higher level. My concern is when de Jong returns, Sissoko will go back to the wing, and back to playing poorly. So maybe sell him unless deJOng can play elsewhere.

    It’s about their contracts running out not the club selling them off to make money.

    If they get better contracts elsewhere then they can be off.

    It’s valid to be concerned about it until the club have signed them up on new contracts.

    It’s still in the hands of the players and greedy agents.

    We don’t have so many players that we can sell for profit this January. Only Sissoko and Tiote really.

    Exceptional bid on Krul perhaps but more likely to leave in summer when we have Darlow is coming in.

    Someone else might get sold at slight loss or loaned out to make room for for “a better player coming in”. I’m already counting Mbiwa in this category.

    And people worried about Abeid. His contract runs out in 2016 according to transfermarkt.

    It is Jonas, R.Taylor, Woodman and Sammy this summer.

    most of the player i can see going shouldnt have any effect on the club tbh !
    not saying all will go or any in fact but most likely to go if there are takers are.

    arfa/marv/guti/williamson/vukic/fergusson-free or low fee
    krull – 7mil+
    tiote 6mil+
    santon 6mil+
    rolando (only cos of hype and the fact city are interested) 20mil +
    mbiwa 5mil+

    and i doubt krull would be let go untill the end of the season if he was to go at all tbh.

    If Abeid has a broken toe it’s 6 weeks before he can train on it. I’ve done mma for years and seen this injury many times.
    And had it happen twice to me.
    As trivial as it sounds it’s still a bad injury.

    I’d settle for a straight swap with Ryan Taylor if him and tiote are still out for qpr.

    Krul

    Jan, willo, dummet, haidara

    Sissokho, Taylor, colback

    Cabella, Perez, sammy

    Assuming colo, Taylor, tiote, cisse, Abeid and Aaron’s are all out.

    @23 harley

    not a bad call on raylor in the middle as he even adds set pieces and accuracy to the team but i’m not convinced he’s 100% fit either from the u21 game i watched !
    suppose he can always be subbed if he doesnt cope to well though.

    me 2

    ba would go straight into the team for sure but cabaye would cause a stir with sisoko/colback/abied/siem/tiote i cant see 2 of them being happy to warm the bench for cabaye to play every game like he would expect to do imo.

    its also a reason why i can see tiote pushing for a move in the transfer window tbh not that i want him to go as he’s a very good player.

    even if it’s just one of them that will do me, I would like ba because him and Perez would work, it would be like a shearer/Bellamy partnership with another player with them, I would like cabaye because with him and de jong they are so creative and very good passers of the ball and to have both of them in the same lineup boy oh boy would we score loads of goals.

    Cisse should not be ahead of perez regardless of fully fit or not. Doesn’t matter perez is not a natural number 9 like cisse. Perez chases the ball, closes down, does flicks and tricks. Also deserves an extended run in the first team.
    Cisse has talent but half da times he looks uninterested

    Cabaye, Sissoko and Colback would be a decent midfield, but does Cabaye offer anymore than Abied?

    Perez looks to be one of those “false 9s” that seem to be used so often in Spain. Ok, we can’t expect him to be Messi, but he can certainly give us that exciting new dimension if we use him in the middle of a front 3. The lad has tekkers.

    I only saw the second half of the game on Thursday but you’re right, I’d rather start him and sub him if he gets tired.

    We’ve could change the formation and bring Armstrong on. I’d rather see him over Anita or goufran.

    Cabaye suited the premiership perfectly imo. Abied is a canny player, and i think will keep getting better, but cabs on his day was excellent for us. Cant see him coming back tbh.
