Rolando Aarons has moved to Czech club FC Slovan Liberec on loan after missing out on a potential move to a Bulgarian club only yesterday.
And it turns out, our Slovakian goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, who played for FC Slovan Liberec from 2016-2017 was asked by the Liberec manager Zsolt Hornyak about Rolando.
And after some positive comments about the winger from the Newcastle goalkeeper, Liberec signed him on loan until January and as we said earlier today that’s good for Rolando.
Rolando Aarons – bye for now
Here’s the official announcement from Newcastle today:
Rolando Aarons has joined FC Slovan Liberec on loan.
The winger has completed a six-month switch to the Modrobílí, who are currently eighth in the Czech top flight.”
Aarons, 22, made his Magpies debut against Manchester City on the opening day of the 2014/15 season, and has made 27 appearances for the club, scoring four times.”
The former England under-20 international was loaned to Italian side Hellas Verona for the second half of last season, and made 11 Serie A appearances.
And here’s the official Liberec announcement on their Twitter account:
Liberec manager Zsolt Hornyak, who was appointed this summer by the Czech club, spoke with Dubravka about Rolando and here’s what he has said about the move on the Czech club’s website today:
“Of course, we tried to find out about Aarons the maximum information we could.”
“From what we found, we knew he could be a good reinforcement for us offensively; he is a quick winger and he should sit well in our style of play.”
“With the signing of Rolando, we were helped by former goalkeeper Martin Dubravka , who is currently in Newcastle.”
“He gave us positive feedback and provided him with basic information about our club and the city.”
It is deadline day in the Czech Republic for transfers and loan deals.
Good work by Martin Dubravka – wonder if he is friends with any of the top Czech players who may want to have the huge opportunity to move to Newcastle United in January or next summer?
