Hull City are reportedly in talks to sign Newcastle United winger Rolando Aarons on a loan deal until the end of the season.
The 22-year-old has been told he can leave St James’ Park on loan and is keen to play regular football after an injury-hit spell which saw him out for nearly a year.
He’s recently fallen out of favour with Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez, with the winger only appearing in four Premier League games this season.
Aarons joined the Newcastle academy from Bristol City in 2012 and was handed his debut in 2014 when he came on as a substitute in a 2-0 defeat to Manchester City.
However, the Jamaican-born player has failed to assert himself in the first team, and Sky Sports have reported that Hull boss Nigel Atkins is keen to bring in the Magpie outcast.
Benitez publically stated that Aarons was available for loan, as he said in a press conference: “One that maybe now has more chance to leave is Rolando Aarons. I was talking with him and he was saying that we were bringing in another player and asking if maybe he could go.“
The Magpies signed Chelsea player Kenedy on a half-season loan deal, which only opens the door for Aarons to play his football with the Tigers under Atkins.
Hull can offer Aarons a platform in the Championship but Atkins must try and persuade the player to join a club that are 21st in the Championship and scrapping it out for survival in England's second tier
