Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth also spoke about his new signing on the club’s official website this morning:
“We’ve been hit by a couple of injuries up front and it looks like we’ll be without Fred Onyedinma and Paul Smyth for a little while. But 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 and 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’d like to thank Newcastle for trusting us with one of their young stars, and now we’re looking forward to seeing him in action, starting with this Saturday’s big game against Lincoln.”
Rolando’s loan deal is only until January 13th. Ironically enough his final game for the club could be the away fixture at Sunderland on January 11th. It says a lot that Aarons has dropped down two leagues for first-team football.
He mentioned earlier this summer that he believed he was a Premier League quality player. It just hasn’t worked our for him at Newcastle. The hope will be that he can regain some of his form in League One, and possibly find a permanent move in January. He still has two years left on his contract.
Rolando’s attitude has been admirable this summer. He will have been bitterly disappointed with not making the squad, but he has gotten on with it and can help Wycombe in League One.
This is a stark contrast to Jack Colback, who seems to be more than willing to stay at Newcastle with no possibility to get on the pitch. He is quite content to run down his contract rather than move to a club in Scotland or League One where he could at least be playing football.
