Another Talented Young Player Likely To Leave Newcastle This Summer


News in the Mirror that Rolando Aarons is interesting West Brom who could bid for him this summer.

Baggies manager Darren Moore is a former Jamaican International and is now said to be keen on signing the Kingston-born Aarons.

It doesn’t seem that Aarons is in Rafa Benitez’ plans for the future and is likely to be moved on this summer.

Newcastle already have wingers Matt Ritchie, Jacob Murphy, and Christian Atsu in the squad and Benitez wants another winger brought in this summer.

Chelsea’s 22-year-old Brazilian U23 International Kenedy is the number one target.

22-year-old Rolando Aarons – West Brom interested

Aarons still has three years left on his contract at Newcastle, and he could leave permanently this summer or on a season loan deal with an option (or obligation) to buy next summer.

Aarons spent the second half of last season on loan at Italian club Hellas Verona where he played a total of 10 games but did not impress for the relegated club.

Rolando has considerable skill but has picked up several serious injuries which have impacted his development over the last four years.

He has played 27 times with four goals for Newcastle.

If Aarons leaves he will join 21-year-old Mikel Merino out of the door.

The Spanish U21 International seems almost certain to join Real Sociedad in the next few days, but Rafa wanted to keep his young compatriot on Tyneside.

Comments welcome.

    Sadly Rolando Aarons failed to step up to the next level for Newcastle United partly due to injuries but alas it’s time for NUFC to cah in on him – I wish him well where ever his next port of call may be.

    we always seem to have players that promise so much but always seem to fail very badly one day we might get a gem???

    I hope England play a full strength team tonight, I don’t see any advantage at all in resting players, it’s a seven game tournament played over a month, these lads are at peak fitness and should be up to the task. If Belgium are trying to lose to get an easier route it could back fire massively as it would rile up their next opponents knowing that they would rather face them.

    That’s a typo to start with.
    Worthy of a complaint to the Advertising Standards Authority

    SITC, I guess we’ll see but Kane is chasing the golden boot, he won’t be wanting to back off and will expect the team to put in a shift too.

    Also, despite the goals, he won’t be happy with his highlights reel so far. That’s not a criticism, he’ll take his goals any way he can get them, but he’d rather a few steepling headers and 20-yard firecrackers thrown in.

    Jail, it’s also 30 degrees, way hotter than our lads (and the Belgians) are used to playing in. I can see the logic in resting players for the next round, but I don’t think Southgate will.

    My take on it is that you try to win every game and let the rest of the tournament including your future games look after itself. That way every player is clear on what is expected at all times

    RobLeenio,
    Italia 90 and Mexico 86 would have been bloody hot and Robson never rested players

    In 70 years of World Cup participation we have only been in one semi final, aprt from 66, which was played on home soil.
    If it helps us we must do just enough to loose.

    Look disappointed, but do just enough to loose.
