Newcastle United attacker Rolando Aarons has never lived up to his potential since coming through the youth ranks at St James’ Park and January may be the perfect time to offload him on a permanent basis.
The 23-year-old showed glimpses of his quality in the Magpies first team, scoring four goals in 27 senior appearances.
But the winger has since become a forgotten man at the North East club and now has two failed loan spells under his belt.
The English wide man failed to make an impact on loan with Serie A club Hellas Verona in the second half of last season, while this campaign he flopped at Czech club FC Slovan Liberec.
According to the Chronicle, Aarons is now back at Newcastle from his loan with Slovan and training with the reserves due to the fact he’s not resisted to play in the Premier League.
Rafael Benitez’s squad is currently in need of some extra attacking quality in January, but it seems extremely unlikely that Aarons can step up to the mark.
The speed machine would be best served leaving St James’ Park on a permanent basis and a fresh start may be the best path for his career.
He is a skilful winger that has good technical ability, but he’s completely lost his way in the last year and his Newcastle days look numbered.
