Newcastle United winger Rolando Aarons has told the Sunderland Echo that this season has been a frustrating one from a personal point of view.
Aarons has suffered with persistent injury problems and he says that it has been difficult to take a backseat.
Newcastle have struggled in the 19-year-old's absence and Aarons states that he just wants to help them improve now that he is coming back to fitness.
“It’s hard as a fan to watch it, but it’s even more frustrating as a player, especially when you’re injured," he told the Sunderland Echo.
“I just want to be involved and try to help the team, and I’ve not been able to do that for six months."
Aarons played 45 minutes for Newcastle's development side yesterday and John Carver will be hoping that he comes back to fitness soon.
The Magpies look much more threatening with Aarons in their team as he offers a far more direct threat than any other player in their side.
Aarons is blessed with pace and skill and Newcastle may not have struggled so much had the youngster been available all season.
Newcastle have lost their last eight games in a row and Aarons will be hoping his return coincides with an upturn in form for the side.
