Rolando Aarons has reportedly decided to move to Italian top-tier side Hellas Verona instead of Championship side Hull City on deadline day - and Newcastle fans have reacted on Twitter.

Sky Sports claim on their Transfer Centre (Wednesday, 12:12) that the 22-year-old has decided to reject a relegation scrap in the Championship with Nigel Adkins' Hull.

Instead, he is set to move to Verona in a bid to help the Italians survive relegation from Serie A, in a move that will see the exciting winger link up with Rafa Benitez's former assistant manager Fabio Pecchia.

Benitez worked with Pecchia at Real Madrid and Napoli and that could have proved a part in the Toon winger's decision to move to Italy instead of remaining in the country with Hull.

Newcastle fans have reacted on Twitter by applauding Aarons' decision to make the bold move abroad, while others are concerned that the Toon are confirming more outgoing deals than incoming players.

One fan stated that a move to Verona "can only be good for him".
