Report: Newcastle's plans for Rolando Aarons may depend on signing Andros Townsend

Newcastle are reportedly ready to loan Rolando Aarons out.

According to The Chronicle, Newcastle are planning to loan out winger Rolando Aarons - but only if they sign Tottenham winger Andros Townsend.

The Magpies were busy in the transfer market last week, snapping up midfielders Henri Saivet and Jonjo Shelvey from Bordeaux and Swansea City respectively.

Manager Steve McClaren saw his side record an impressive 2-1 win over West Ham on Saturday afternoon, with Shelvey playing a key role in the victory.

Now though, more new signings are needed, and BBC Sport reported over the weekend that the Magpies have entered talks with Tottenham Hotspur over a deal to sign winger Andros Townsend.

Townsend's arrival could have an impact on the immediate future of fellow winger Rolando Aarons, with The Chronicle reporting that Newcastle plan to send Aarons out on loan to give him some first-team experience.

Aarons, 20, burst onto the scene last season but has since struggled with a host of injury problems, and has played just 57 minutes of Premier League football this term.

He may have been named on the bench against West Ham, but it's believed that the signing of England international Townsend will trigger a temporary departure from St. James' Park for pacey winger Aarons, with a Championship move potentially in the pipeline for the young wide man.
