Jamaican international winger Rolando Aarons has joined Motherwell on loan from Huddersfield.
The 26-year-old had already played eight games for Well on loan from Newcastle at the start of 2020 before the pandemic interrupted his spell.
Aarons moved from Tyneside to Huddersfield in January 2021 but has played just 12 times since, including just one last season during an injury campaign.
Motherwell manager Steven Hammell told the club’s official website: “Rolando is a target I had set before I even got the job because I saw with my own eyes his qualities and his potential during his last visit here.
“When I spoke with him, you could tell he really wanted to join us. He’s a player who has a lot to offer. He has pace, he’s direct with a lot of energy and will give us more options on the left or right side.
“He’s had some frustrating times with injuries over the past year and just needs to get back to playing regularly. We think Motherwell is the perfect platform for him to do that.
Aarons, who has scored four goals in 27 games for Newcastle, joins ahead of Wednesday’s Premier Sports Cup second round tie with Inverness at Fir Park.
