ROLANDO AARONS has left Newcastle United and signed a permanent deal with Championship side Huddersfield Town.

Aarons' Magpies contract was due to expire at the end of the season, but his fate was effectively sealed when Steve Bruce omitted him from the 25-man squad that was submitted to the Premier League at the start of the season.

Huddersfield tried to sign the 25-year-old in October, for a proposed move to collapse on deadline day.

However, the Terriers rekindled their interest earlier this week, and have a struck a deal that sees Aarons move to West Yorkshire on a permanent basis.

"I’m buzzing," said Aarons, in an interview with Huddersfield's official website. "It’s nice to know that’s it’s finally done now and I’m looking forward to it.

"I’ve been watching the games, every single game since deadline day in October, and I’ve been keeping fit at Newcastle to get prepared for this moment.

"It was always going to happen one way or another, it didn’t happen in October, but I’m glad it’s happened now."



Aarons joined Newcastle in 2012, having spent his youth career with Bristiol City, and made his senior debut against Manchester City in August 2014.

He made a total of 27 senior appearances for the Magpies, scoring four goals.
