WYCOMBE Wanderers manager Gareth Ainsworth has made a deadline-day swoop for Newcastle United forward Rolando Aarons on a loan deal until January 13th.

Aarons, 23, has earned five caps for England Under 20s and played 18 times for Newcastle in the Premier League, scoring twice.

Most recently he impressed during a loan spell at Championship side Sheffield Wednesday in the second half of last season.

The cousin of Norwich City defender Max, Aarons goes straight into the squad for the League One showdown with Lincoln City at Adams Park this Saturday (3pm).

Ainsworth said: “We’ve been hit by a couple of injuries up front and it looks like we will be without Fred Onyedinma and Paul Smyth for a little while.

"I’m delighted to be able to bring Rolando to the club and I think it’s a real coup to attract someone of his calibre to Adams Park.

“We’ve started the season really well, particularly at home where we’ve played some fantastic attacking football, and Rolando will complement our style with his pace and ability to run at players, plus create chances for himself and others.

Wycombe Wanderers has been a great platform for many young loan players down the years, something we’re extremely proud of, and I’ve got no doubt that Rolando can prove what a talented player he is during his time with us.

"I would like to thank Newcastle for trusting us with one of their young stars and now we’re looking forward to seeing him in action.”

Born in Jamaica, Aarons arrived at Newcastle from Bristol City in 2012, and signed his first professional contract two years later.

His first team debut came in the Premier League against Manchester City, and he scored and set one up against Crystal Palace two weeks later.

He netted on his debut for England U20s in September 2014 and finished the season with six first team appearances for the Magpies, before scoring once in 11 games the following year.

Loan spells in Italy with Hellas Verona and Czech Republic with Slovan Liberec followed before he returned to the UK, signing on loan for Sheffield Wednesday in January 2019 and scoring once in nine appearances.
