Newcastle United have offered Rolando Aarons to Championship clubs with the aim of striking a loan deal, according to The Northern Echo.
Rafael Benitez did not have the most successful summer transfer window with regards to incomings, but he is still working on some outgoings.
The Northern Echo reports that the manager has told managing director Lee Charnley that he wants Aarons to drop into the second tier on a loan arrangement.
The publication states that Newcastle are confident of getting a deal done before the deadline on August 31.
Aarons has been at the North-East outfit since 2012 when he joined the club’s academy from Bristol City.
The winger made his Premier League debut two years later, but has since struggled to hold down a regular spot in the team.
In fact, the 22-year-old, who has scored just twice in England’s top flight, had just four league outings last season before joining Hellas Verona on loan for the second half of the campaign.
The only way that the winger can leave the Magpies on a permanent basis is if he joins a club abroad.
All indications are that Newcastle are pushing for a loan arrangement, but there are no signs of Aarons breaking into the team.
Even though the winger is only 22 years of age, he should be a regular member of Benitez’s squad, but he did not even make the list submitted to the Premier League.
At this time, it seems that a loan switch to the Championship is a likely outcome, but Aarons should seriously consider his future.
In January or next summer, Newcastle will be able to demand a decent enough fee for the winger considering that his contract does not expire until 2021.
