The Star is reporting as an exclusive that Rolando Aarons has turned down the latest contract offer from Newcastle United, which they is a six year deal worth only around £6K/week.
Rolando Aarons – rejected the latest offer from Newcastle
Liverpool and other clubs are said to be waiting in the wings, but Newcastle are not stupid enough to allow this to go on for too much longer, until they offer the 19 year-old what he’s worth – and it’s a lot more than £6K/week.
A Toon source – which to us sounds a lot like one of his representatives – had this to say to the Star about the offer:
“The contract is what you would expect them to offer someone in the reserve team not one of their best youngsters.”
Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal are the three clubs said to be keeping tabs on the negotiations, but it’s unlikely he will be joining either one of those clubs anytime soon.
Newcastle currently have a one year deal with Aarons, and a one year extension – so he’s contracted to Newcastle until June of 2016.
Newcastle do offer their top young players six year deals, so we need to increase the offer soon – this lad looks like he has the talent to make it to the very top.
We want him playing his football for Newcastle in the future.
Rolando came to prominence at Newcastle in pre-season where he was brilliant down the left wing, and then played really well at the start of the season and in five appearances he has two goals.
But the 19 year-old has been suffering from a long term hamstring injury since September, and he is still out with the injury, which has limited his appearances for the first team so far this season.
