Aarons set for late move?

Newcastle United forgotten man Rolando Aarons looks set to be offered a Championship escape route before the end of the domestic transfer window.

At 5pm today the transfer window slams shut and with Aarons cut adrift by Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce, the winger must find a new club – if he wants to get games between now and January.

And, according to the Daily Mail, the 24-year-old could make a move to Huddersfield Town.

The report claims the Terriers are in talks with United to broker a deal for the wideman, whose current Newcastle deal comes to an end in June.

A few Deadline Day reminders...

- The transfer window will close at 5pm this evening

- New signings must be registered by Noon to be eligible for tomorrow’s fixtures

- Clubs can have an extra two hours to seal deals if they submit a Deal Sheet by 3pm

- Free agents can be signed outside the window - providing they became a free agent before the window closes

Here we are again… Deadline Day!

While Newcastle are unlikely to be bringing any new faces in today, they could be busy when it comes to outgoings - with a host of fringe players potentially on the move.
