Hull City are reportedly in talks to sign Newcastle United winger Rolando Aarons on a loan deal until the end of the season.
The 22-year-old has been told he can leave St James’ Park on loan and is keen to play regular football after an injury-hit spell which saw him out for nearly a year.
Benitez publically stated that Aarons was available for loan, as he said in a press conference: “One that maybe now has more chance to leave is Rolando Aarons. I was talking with him and he was saying that we were bringing in another player and asking if maybe he could go.“
The Magpies signed Chelsea player Kenedy on a half-season loan deal, which only opens the door for Aarons to play his football with the Tigers under Atkins.
Hull can offer Aarons a platform in the Championship but Atkins must try and persuade the player to join a club that are 21st in the Championship and scrapping it out for survival in England's second tier
