ROLANDO Aarons has broken his silence and revealed why he has been sidelined longer than expected.

The Newcastle United winger had been pencilled in to return from a hamstring problem early this year.

But 19-year-old – who made an explosive start to his first-team career at the club after breaking into the first-team squad – has suffered a series of setbacks.

And Aarons – who has turned down a new contract at United – taken to Twitter to reveal he has suffered “multiple hamstring injuries and a thigh strain”.

In a series of tweets, Aarons said: “The amount of reasons I’ve seen as to why I’m not playing the sport I love. Lol funny.

“If I’m not playing I’m not physically ready.

“‘Been out 5 months with a hamstring’. It’s been multiple hamstring injuries and a thigh strain. I’m working on myself to come back ready.”

Aarons last played for the club in early November, when he came off the bench against Liverpool at St James’s Park.
