Top Newcastle Youngster To Get New Five Year Deal

6:47 pm, Wednesday, August 10th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 7 Comments

News coming through that Rolando Aarons is ready to sign a new  deal to stay long-term at Newcastle United.

The 19 year-old is in the final year of his current contract and has been offered a new five-year deal to stay on at Newcastle under Rafa Benitez.

Rafa Benitez with Rolando Aarons

Newcastle had been negotiating with Aaron’s reps a year or so ago, but no deal could be agreed, but it seems that Rafa Benitez is now tying down some top youngsters at Newcastle for the future.

19 year-old impressive goalkeeper Freddie Woodman recently signed a new four year deal to keep him at the club and he will likely be sent out on loan in January.

There is nothing official coming from Newcastle yet, but the new deal is said to be imminent via multiple outlets.

Rolando has always said he would be happy to stay on at Newcastle, especially since Rafa came in as the manager last March and he will be a happy lad to get this new improved deal from the manager.

In his role of being completely in control of all  football matters at the club, it is Rafa who chooses which players get new contracts and he will then work with Managing Director Lee Charnley on the financial sideof things  to set the wages.

With the new arrivals and those who have left the club this summer, Rafa has brought down the average age of the squad significantly and working with Lee they have also brought down the total wage bill for this coming season.

Rolando is a talented young player who is popular with Newcastle fans, who will be pleased with his new deal to stay on at Newcastle United

Comments welcome.

Note: The initiative “It’s Not Just Black and White” was partly inspired by the recent sad paparazzi photos of Paul Gascoigne, and a number of supporters have banded together to draw attention to the complexities of mental health and alcoholism – their action line is “It’s not just black and white”.

The group is not asking for donations but is simply keen to raise awareness of the problem through their web-site here.

    This would be excellent news, if fit and plays games he is more than capable of playing at a good prem standard.

    Janmaat, Mbemba, Ritchie, Mitrovic are the others that will be good enough next season. Maybe Hayden too.

    About time we settled this and tied Aarons to a long term deal. Shame Rafa wasn’t here in time to judge Oliver Kemen as he would have been useful this season.

    Interesting point about the average age of the squad, i believe it’s just over 25 now.
