Newcastle Youngster Rejects Latest Contract Offer

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 Newcastle

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.

What do you think?

    Man City will probably throw forty thousand a week at him, and maybe loan him back to us if we’re lucky, and him, cos he’d never see the light of day otherwise. Really six is too low though of course, but what’s he actually done.

    Ha, ha, it is funny. It looks more like indentured servitude. I’m sure that’s how he and his representatives would view it. I think, although not sure, that Aarons was initially offered long terms, but signed for the year only, because he backed himself for better. So I don’t doubt he’ll be taking an entirely dismissive view of this, which is actually quite insulting.

    Former Newcastle goalkeeper Steve Harper backs Jak Alnwick to perform well against Sunderland after making mistakes during his side’s 4-0 League Cup defeat at Tottenham on Wednesday. Harper wrote on Twitter:(external) “Rather than criticism, Jak Alnwick needs a proper Geordie reception when he runs out on Sunday lunchtime to give him a lift before the game. Get behind the young lad by singing his name to pick him up and watch him grow in response to it. #toonarmy.

    It such a cat and mouse game, but the cats long out of the bag. We all know Ashley wants promising young players on long contracts at the lowest possible wages, but surely this going in low, low, low is just now tiresome. Who’s buying it anymore?

    Ok that’s me done. I’ve even managed to bore myself off the blog this time.

    Jeff from Benwell – thanks but I can not be proud of predicting a thrashing. I think AP has recieved the same instructions as Aladyce, to play attacking football. But he does not have any idea how to,it is all about work and determination.

    This report is inaccurate. It is actually £6k per week on a zero hour contract so if he doesn’t play any first team minutes he only gets a three pack of Slazenger sports socks. With offers like this from a guy worth £3.6bn why would you not be flattered?

    Good player but really still yet to prove himself. Has been outstanding when we’ve seen him but appears injury prone at the moment.

    If he can play half a season consistently with the form he has shown then sure give him whatever he wants.

    But for someone so young that has played so little for the senior team to start pocketing 20k per week + I think will go to his head and cause problems. We have a 1 year extension option on his contract. In the mean time make him earn it.

    6K is pretty low, but that will just be a basic. There will no doubt be incentivised payments included, appearances, goals, assists, result based. Probably with an option for renegotiation based on performances at some stage of the 6 years as well.

    Alternatively we could offer him 20K a week for 5 years and watch him be injured for the majority of the time. It isn’t like this is his first injury, he suffered with them at Bristol – part of the reason he was released there – and in our youth side.

    While he has looked very good when he has played, you can count them on 1 hand. If he wants big bucks on the back of little, then he can head to City and watch his career disappear down the pan. I doubt that is what Aarons wants, and I’m fairly certain a satisfactory compromise will be reached.

    More likely to be his agent mischief making and wanting a larger cut for themselves, as Aarons has shown a decent work ethic and commitment to his game.

    One of the top young players not only at his club but in this league and Ashley insults him by offering £6k a week? Tell me again why 52,000 turn up to support this this man and show there approval for the way he’s running this club again?

    I’d say so at the minute. Makes it even more annoying that Pardew brought him back early for the City match against medical advice. He had problems when he arrived here, and at Bristol with injuries.

    When we play Man U on Boxing Day the lad should make a beeline for Giggs and ask him about the changes Giggs made to his entire lifestyle and his training and personal fitness regime that helped Giggs to stop having regular hamstring problems.

    Lots of yoga, pilates and giving up his sports cars helped Giggs (amongst other things I’d imagine). I’m sure Giggs would be more than happy to share a bit of advice with the lad.

    He gave up his sports cars eh. Well, at 6 k Rolando won’t be building his collection fast, so that’s a positive with that offer 😉

    Ha, true. I’m sure that will be one of the first things he saves up for though, a fancy new motor!

    I don’t think I’d want to give him anymore than 10k a week at the minute. He has only had the second half of last season injury free in 2 years at the club. He has only played 209 first team minutes, and been out injured for 14 of our 20 matches so far.

    As Blofal said, we have the 1 year option on the deal, if he isn’t willing to be sensible, exercise the option and see how he gets on. Point out the number of players who went to big clubs when they weren’t ready and have since fallen by the wayside. Provided his agent doesn’t have him wrapped round his grubby little fingers, then he will see sense.

    If he goes to City then he will share the same fate as Rodwell and Sinclair.
    If he really wants to go then best option will be Arsenal.
    I hope he stays and doesn’t think too much of himself asking 25k to 40k/week wage.
    I think this move or publicity is orchestrated by his agents to pressure NUFC to give him more money.

    lets face it guys, money over career is normally the route these guys take,

    id say 6K is not a bad offer for his age and experience, but the length of the contract is the thing, 6 years ?

    6k a week the first 2 years, then renegotiate it, as I hope by then he is a first team fixture, 45k after that

    Catchy @28 – For once I’m in total agreement with you. The length of the contract is for our protection – for his age 6K/week is pretty good which can be re-negotiated if he lives up to his promise. You guys would chuck 50k/week at him for 6 years and watch him flop and would then be the first to whinge about the club wasting money on no-hopers!

    Imo, the problems with Cisse stemmed from money, he wanted more for being top scorer, they said you needed to hit twenty goals, he said how can I do that if you play me on the right and don’t buy players. Jonas can’t get a game because his contract had clauses, from what we’ve heard about Ashley I’d be very wary of signing a negotiable contract.

    I agree with catchy regarding Aarons.

    Possibly 10k then re-negotiate after say a year or two depending on performances. Seems fair considering he’s been crocked a lot.

    Well it looks like fatty’s tightened his grip even further over rangers. Owl head has been officially confirmed as the new CEO. Took considerably less in wages than what they’d normally offer. What a guy. Good luck rangers, your gonna need it!

    Aarons is the best, most exciting talent to emerge in a heck of a long time. If we screw this one up too we basically deserve all we get.

    Our buffoon of a manager has done his part by bringing Aarons back too soon, but if Charnley and Ash don’t do something to get it sorted we are going to seriously regret it.

    Old Beardo seems to be setting up a bit of a production line at the moment with Aarons, Armstrong, Roberts etc.

    Pardew’s little good run was achieved by givng the kids a go. Now they’re back in the box with favourites Willo, Tiote and Gouffran all restored. What a s–t way to run a club.
