DONE DEAL: Sheffield Wednesday sign Newcastle pair Aarons and Lazaar

Newcastle United pair Rolando Aarons and Achraf Lazaar have joined Championship side Sheffield Wednesday on loan until the end of the season.

Aarons, 23, has recently returned from a loan spell with Czech outfit Slovan Liberec, where he made 13 appearances.

The wide-man has scored four times in 27 outings for the Magpies at first-team level, though he hasn't featured in a competitive game for more than a year.

Lazaar, meanwhile, last played for United in a Carabao Cup clash with Nottingham Forest almost 18 months ago. The full back joined Newcastle from Italian side Palermo in August 2016, and returned to Serie A – with Benevento – for the 2017/18 campaign.
