How Rolando Aarons has fared since leaving Newcastle

It is almost one year on from when Newcastle United took the decision to sell winger Rolando Aarons.

The star had left many fans wondering what might have been, as he moved to Championship side Huddersfield Town, after making just 27 first-team appearances for the Magpies.

Aarons made his Toon debut all the way back in 2014 against Manchester City.


He had been tipped for a big future at the club. He was even given a five-year contract under Rafa Benitez.

But he struggled to live up to his billing and in the end, only scored four times for the club.

Before leaving for Huddersfield, he had loan spells at several clubs. Those included Hellas Verona, Slovan Liberec, Sheffield Wednesday, Wycombe Wanderers and Motherwell.

How Rolando Aarons has fared since leaving Newcastle

Aarons joined Huddersfield on January 7. He made his debut for the club a couple of days later against Plymouth Argyle in the FA Cup.

He would then get his first start in the league against Watford a few days after that.

In total, he made 11 appearances for the club for a total of 515 minutes. He did not score or make any assists. He struggled to make an impact as a result of fitness issues.

And unfortunately for Aarons, he has barely featured for the Terriers in 2021/22.

The 26-year-old has made just one appearance so far. That was an eight-minute cameo against Barnsley at the start of the month.

Aarons has featured so little due to struggles with a knee injury, which he came into the season with.

Manager Carlos Corberan said recently that the player would be seeing a specialist about the issue.

It remains to be seen if the player will need to spend some time on the sidelines.

But since leaving Newcastle, things haven’t really gone too well for the star, who would really have hoped for a positive start to his fresh chapter.

He certainly would not have foreseen himself still not completing 90 minutes for the club almost one year after leaving St. James’ Park.
