When Rolando Aarons broke onto the first-team scene in 2014, Newcastle United thought they had a real superstar on their hands.
From netting his first Premier League goal against Crystal Palace to scoring in a 2-0 win away at Manchester City in the League Cup, Aarons looked set to star in Magpies starting 11 for years to come.
But frequent injury problems throughout the last few years hampered his development before this summer, following a loan spell with Hellas Verona, was deemed surplus to requirements after Rafa Benitez left the winger out of his 25-man squad.

Dan @danielfairley8: Why doesn’t he get the experience in the Championship or something. Harder league. Become a better player then.
