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.

He’s recently fallen out of favour with ​Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez, with the winger only appearing in four ​Premier League games this season.

Aarons joined the Newcastle academy from ​Bristol City in 2012 and was handed his debut in 2014 when he came on as a substitute in a 2-0 defeat to ​Manchester City.

However, the Jamaican-born player has failed to assert himself in the first team, and ​Sky Sports have reported that ​Hull boss Nigel Atkins is keen to bring in the Magpie outcast.

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
