Newcastle United’s Rolando Aarons has completed a move away from St James’ Park on loan - and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter believe it’s a shame how his career has panned out.

The Magpies have confirmed that the 22-year-old has joined Czech top-flight club FC Slovan Liberec on a six-month deal.


Aarons has had a strange career so far and not gone on to reach his expected potential after making his first-team debut for Newcastle in 2014.

The left-winger was a highly-rated talent when he first came through the academy and was tipped by many to become a regular at senior level.

But that hasn’t been the case and he spent some time out on loan with Italian club Hellas Verona last season to try get his career back on track.

The wide man clearly doesn’t feature in the plans of current Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez this season and feels he has enough in his squad to allow his temporary exit.

Aarons will try to discover some kind of form with Czech outfit FC Slovan Liberec, who current Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka used to play for.

A selection of Newcastle fans are amazed at the fall from grace of the winger and are not sure if he will get another first-team opportunity with the club.
