West Brom considering move to sign Newcastle United winger – Report

According to the Mirror, West Brom boss Darren Moore is considering a move to sign Newcastle winger Rolando Aarons this summer.

The 22-year-old has become somewhat of a forgotten man over recent seasons, with injuries, failure to break into Benitez’s squad and a unsuccessful loan spell with Verona seeing his future at the club be plunged into serious doubt this summer.

The Mirror claim that West Brom are now considering a move to sign him after the Baggies missed out on Bristol City’s Bobby Reid – with them also facing the prospect of losing winger James McClean to Stoke.

Here’s a snippet from their latest piece today:

West Brom may bid for Newcastle winger Rolando Aarons after missing out on Bobby Reid.

Ex-Jamaica international Moore has now turned his attentions to other targets including Newcastle’s Kingston-born flyer Aarons.

Aarons,22, is an England U20 international who showed great promise breaking into Newcastle’s first team in 2014, but his progress has since been stalled by injury and he was loaned out last season to Hellas Verona in Italy.

Aarons has shown his talent on occasion, but we’ve not seen enough from him to believe that he’s currently good enough to get into our squad at this level, with Ritchie, Atsu and Murphy all ahead of him in the pecking order out wide.



We’ll be looking to sign another winger as it is this summer (Kenedy?), so it may be best for all parties if we move him on – especially when a move to a recently relegated West Brom seems like as good as he’s going to get at this stage of his career.
