DONE DEAL: Motherwell snap up Newcastle winger Rolando Aarons

Motherwell have snapped up Newcastle United winger Rolando Aarons.

Aarons, 24, joins on a deal until the end of the season and will help replace James Scott, who has signed for Hull City.

The former England under-20 international spent the first half of the season on loan at League One promotion chasers Wycombe Wanderers, scoring twice in 13 appearances.

He has played 27 times for Newcastle, scoring four times, and has also featured 11 times in Serie A with Hellas Verona and had spells with Slovan Liberec and Sheffield Wednesday.

"We're delighted to be bringing in Rolando," said Well manager Stephen Robinson. "He will bring even more pace and energy to our front line and give us options."

"His arrival will also allow us to move Mikael Ndjoli into his more natural position as a central striker, instead of playing in wide positions."
