Rolando Aarons was hailed as one of the most exciting young prospects in the Newcastle United squad after he broke into the Magpies’ first-team back in the 2014/15 Premier League season. But it has to be said that the winger has not quite been able to match the hype that surrounded him over the past two years.
Due to persistent injury problems, as well as inconsistency, Aarons has failed to establish himself as a regular for Newcastle during the last two seasons and the jury remains out in regards to whether the youngster will be able to fulfill his immense potential.
Following Newcastle’s relegation, Aarons is now expected to be given more chances to impress in the first-team during the upcoming campaign by manager Rafael Benitez and the 20-year-old has shown encouraging signs during pre-season.
As Aarons has entered the final year of his contract at Newcastle this term, many view the upcoming Championship campaign as a make or break for the former Bristol City youngster.
While it remains to be seen if Aarons will be able to finally prove his worth, the Newcastle fans clearly want the youngster to do well and many have urged him to put pen to paper on a new deal at St. James’ Park in response to his post on social media website Twitter.
Aarons posted the following pictures from Newcastle’s open day training session on Tuesday:
In response Newcastle fans urged him to sign a new contract as soon as possible, while some wished him luck ahead of the commencement of the 2016/17 Championship season:
