According to the Newcastle Chronicle, John Carver will watch Rolando Aarons’ return to football with an eye on introducing him back into the first-team before the season ends.
The 19-year-old, who hasn’t featured for Newcastle since November, had a big impact at the start of the season and looked to be a very promising prospect with an exciting future at the club. However, so far, injuries have got in the way.
Last month, it was reported by the Guardian that the youngster would miss the rest of the season due to a recurring hamstring injury, but it now seems he could still have a part to play in the club’s bid for Premier League survival.
The Magpies sit just two points above Sunderland, who are in the drop zone but with a game in hand.
After eight straight defeats, the pressure has increased on the Tyneside club and with three games to go, many are predicting that they could be the club who will occupy the last relegation spot at the end of the season.
Can Aarons help Newcastle survive?
With the form Newcastle are currently in, Carver certainly needs someone who is looking to, and can, make an impact for his side.
After sitting on 35 points for eight games in a row, it has almost become impossible for supporters to see where their next point is going to come from, especially with just three games left.
If Aarons can prove his fitness then it may not be beyond the realms of possibility that his direct flair and creativity could be the difference between Premier League and Championship football next season.
