Rolando Aarons relishing his loan spell with Sheffield Wednesday

Rolando Aarons relishing his loan spell with Sheffield Wednesday

Rolando Aarons joined Sheffield Wednesday on a loan deal from Newcastle United on Deadline Day and appears to be ready to grab this opportunity with both hands.

The 23-year-old, who has made three substitute appearances for The Owls, has had a difficult couple of seasons with a number of loan spells at various clubs recently.

However, the winger has admitted that he is keen to make the most of his time at Hillsborough in the final half of the Championship campaign.


Speaking to The Sheffield Star, he said: “It’s a very important loan. I look at every game the same. I want to do my best. I want to make assists, take players on and score goals.

“I look at every game as important and being here at Sheffield Wednesday is an opportunity to show everyone in England what I can do.

“I have been ready since I signed (to start). When the gaffer decides to put me in, I will be ready to show what I can do.”

Aarons was joined by Newcastle outcast Achraf Lazaar and former Wolverhampton Wanderers centre-back Dominic Iorfa on Deadline Day.

The Verdict:

Steve Bruce has been playing the midfielder out on the wing, which is Aarons’ favoured position and that could benefit Sheffield Wednesday over the final stretch of the campaign.

The 23-year-old certainly has something to prove within the English game as a lot was once expected of him in the past, however, he has failed to kick on and impress.

When given the chance to impress from the start, Aarons must make the most of the opportunity and show those at Hillsborough why he was brought into the club in January.
