Rolando Aarons set for Newcastle return after Instagram post

Aarons left Newcastle in the summer to join Slovan Liberec on loan until January.

Rolando Aarons has told Newcastle United fans on Instagram that he is set to return to Tyneside after spending the first half of the season on loan at Czech side Slovan Liberec.

The 23-year-old was ushered out on loan by Rafa Benitez at the last minute in the summer window, with it clear that the former Bristol City youth player had little chance of breaking into the first team.

 

Christian Atsu, Jacob Murphy, Matt Ritchie and Kenedy are all above the Jamaican-born winger in the pecking order and that convinced Aarons that he would be better off getting game time elsewhere.

Despite interest from the Championship, the England Under-20 international left St. James' Park to sign for Czech First League side Liberec. Now, that loan has finished, and Aarons posted his farewell to Liberec - confirming his return.

Aarons played 13 times in all competitions for Liberec, starting nine matches and coming on as a substitute in another four. He failed to score or provide a single assist.

The fleet-footed winger has two and a half years remaining on his Newcastle contract which is believed to be worth £14,000 a week according to Spotrac. The January transfer window is likely to prove an interesting one for Aarons.
