NEWCASTLE UNITED are offering Rolando Aarons to clubs in the Championship as they look to complete the overhaul of their first-team squad before the end of the month.

Henri Saivet should complete a permanent move to Turkish club Bursaspor in the next couple of days, but Newcastle are also hoping to move on Aarons and Achraf Lazaar before the window for international moves and Football League loans closes on August 31.

None of the trio were included in the squad list that was submitted to the Premier League ahead of the start of the season, and their absence from yesterday’s Under-23s game at West Brom provided further confirmation that they do not form part of Rafael Benitez’s plans for the remainder of the campaign.

Aarons has been touted around a number of Championship sides, with Newcastle officials hoping to set up a season-long loan for the winger, who is contracted to the Magpies until the summer of 2021.

Once regarded as one of the brightest prospects in the club’s development ranks, Aarons’ career has been blighted by a series of injuries and off-field controversies.

His last senior appearance for Newcastle came in December’s defeat to Manchester City, and he spent the second half of last season on loan at Verona.

Benitez fielded the winger in pre-season games at St Patrick’s Athletic and Hull, but has subsequently instructed Magpies managing director Lee Charnley to engineer Aarons’ departure.

Charnley is currently awaiting a response from a number of clubs, and is confident a deal will be agreed before the loan window closes.

Lazaar is more likely to move overseas, having spent last season on loan at Italian side Benevento. The left-back has been told he does not have a future on Tyneside, and his representatives are attempting to set up a return to Italy.

Saivet’s departure should be confirmed in the next couple of days, with the midfielder having travelled to Turkey yesterday to undergo a medical and finalise personal terms with Bursaspor.

His departure is expected to be permanent, although it is not yet clear whether Newcastle will receive a fee for the 27-year-old, who cost £5m when he signed from Bordeaux in 2016.

Saivet, who has three years of his contract remaining, made the last of his eight senior Magpies appearances in January’s FA Cup defeat to Chelsea.

Newcastle have strengthened their academy ranks with the signing of teenagers Yannick Toure and Rosaire Longelo.

Toure, a 17-year-old striker, joins from Swiss side Young Boys, with Newcastle having beaten off competition from a number of clubs to secure his signature.

Longelo, an 18-year-old winger, moves from West Ham, having spent almost a decade in the Hammers’ youth set-up.

Both players should feature in this season’s Checkatrade Trophy campaign, and there are especially high hopes for Toure, who is a Swiss Under-17 international.

“I’m very happy to sign for Newcastle,” said Toure. “I’ve heard a lot about them. I know it’s a famous club in England, and I’m very, very happy to be here.

“There was a lot of interest in me, but I chose to come here because it’s a great and traditional club in England.

“I’m an offensive player and I like to score goals. My position is a striker, but I can play on the left and right. I want to work hard, to learn, and ultimately to play for the first team.”

Longelo was a second-half substitute as Newcastle kicked off their Under-23s campaign with a 1-1 draw at West Brom yesterday.

Freddie Woodman, Sean Longstaff, Victor Fernandez, Callum Roberts and Jamie Sterry were all named in Ben Dawson’s side after featuring in Newcastle’s first team during pre-season, but the Magpies fell behind early on when Nathan Ferguson netted for the Baggies.

Newcastle equalised at the start of the second half as Roberts converted Owen Bailey’s square ball across the box.

Meanwhile, former Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko has avoided retrospective punishment despite appearing to stamp on Kenedy during Tottenham’s weekend win over the Magpies.
