Newcastle United: Fans react as Rolando Aarons joins Wycombe on loan

Loads of Newcastle United supporters have been reacting on social media, after the Magpies announced that Rolando Aarons has joined League One side Wycombe Wanderers on loan until January.

Aarons was one of a number of fringe options the Magpies had been looking to offload after Steve Bruce deemed them surplus to requirements, as the North East outfit faced a £125,000-a-week bill (Chronicle) for wages of players who would not be able to play a Premier League game until the turn of the year.

The forward had featured heavily in Newcastle’s pre-season, but has not made a competitive appearance for the St. James’ Park natives since December 27, 2017 when Rafa Benitez handed the Kingston, Jamaica-born winger his 27th senior Magpies outing (TransferMarkt) on the left-flank at home to Manchester City.

Since then, the Toon product has spent time on loan with Hellas Verona, Slovan Liberec and Sheffield Wednesday, with his time at Hillsborough for the latter half of last season returning one goal and one assist in 10 Championship fixtures.

Panathinaikos had been credited with an interest in Aarons earlier in the summer, but the cash-strapped Greek side were unable to afford his alleged £14,000-a-week contract (Spotrac).

The 23-year-old has now made the step down to compete in the third-tier of English football, and has joined Wycombe on loan for the first half of the season as they look to build on their promising start to the campaign at Adams Park, with Gareth Ainsworth’s men boasting three wins and three draws after six games.

Aarons will return to Tyneside in the New Year, where he will have 18 months remaining on his contract.

Newcastle fans reacting to Aaron’s temporary move to Wycombe have shared their hope that the 23-year-old can enjoy a profitable spell in League One, although some expect to hear news of injuries.

Here’s how these fans responded when the official Newcastle Twitter account shared that Aarons had joined Wycombe on loan…
