The Huddersfield Examiner has recently reported that Newcastle United winger Rolando Aarons is expected to seal his exit from St. James’ Park during the winter transfer period. It is believed that Huddersfield Town will arrange a deal to bring him to the John Smith’s Stadium when the transfer window reopens in January (via The Huddersfield Examiner).

Aarons’ Career At Newcastle Has Come To A Standstill

The 24-year-old is currently on the fringes of Steve Bruce’s squad as he is yet to make a single appearance for the Magpies this season. His contract with the Tyneside club is set to run out at the end of this campaign, so it only seems logical for both the player and the club to come to a mutual agreement and part ways with each other this winter.

Aarons has participated in a total of 27 matches for Newcastle so far, scoring four goals and grabbing three assists in all competitions. He went out on a six-month loan deal to play for Motherwell where he was involved in eight games, netting one goal and providing two assists in the process.

Upon his return, the Kingston-born wide player failed to include himself in Bruce’s first-team plans for this season. Hence, he has no choice left now but to seal a permanent departure at the start of next year in search of more game time in the years to come.

What Are The English Winger’s Greatest Strengths?

Aarons can use his quickness and agility to make some penetrative runs out on the flanks. He can whip in some inviting crosses into the opponent’s penalty area and usually strikes the ball with power. The Newcastle winger is highly versatile as he can play on either wing but can easily be dominated by the opposition in the air as he doesn’t have the strength to compete with them. He also needs to be more accurate with his passing as he tends to throw away possession cheaply when under pressure from the opposition.

Aarons Set To Join The Terriers In January: Good Move For Everyone Involved?

Now that Aarons looks set to end his St. James’ Park misery, Newcastle can finally move on as his exit won’t affect Steve Bruce’s first-team plans for this campaign. At the same time, the English winger can benefit a lot from sealing a move to Huddersfield Town where he might get the opportunity to play regular first-team football in the coming seasons.

The Tyneside giants need to cut off some of their deadwood in January so that they can generate the funds and make room for some incoming transfers in the future. Letting Aarons go would be a wise decision as the player has already suffered enough during his time at Newcastle. All in all, it will be a good move for everyone involved if the deal goes through in January.
