Concerned Newcastle United fans have taken to Twitter to encourage Rolando Aarons to stay, following rumours that Aston Villa are interested in him.
Aarons has played just 50 minutes of Premier League football, and Newcastle reportedly feel that selling the winger could finance moves for players ready to step into their first-team immediately.
However, Newcastle fans are eager to see Aarons stay, and they have taken to Twitter to express their disappointment over the speculation over his future.

Hearing rumours about you leaving in January. Not true I hope?— Kris Pedersen (@NearlyAllThe7s) December 5, 2017
I hope it isn't we need to see potential develop in our first team not someone elses.— michael laverton (@toonmadmike) December 5, 2017
Stay please lad— Dylan (@SimplyRolando) December 5, 2017
Keep working hard Rolando I’m sure you will get your break sooner rather then later— Chris Cossey (@Cosseycj) December 5, 2017
Aarons burst on to the scene as a youngster, when he stood out for Newcastle in the Premier League, but injury has curtailed his progress.
The wide-man is now fighting to make his way back into Benitez’s first-team plans, with the Spaniard generally overlooking him this season.
Aarons is 22 now, and may feel that the time has come for him to be playing regularly.
Newcastle are next in action at the weekend, when they take on Leicester City at St. James’ Park.
