Newcastle United winger Ronaldo Aarons has thanked new manager Steve Bruce for giving him another chance to prove his worth.
Since making his senior debut for the club in 2014, the 23-year-old has played only 27 games for the Magpies in all competitions, while he has spent loan spells at Hellas Verona, Slovan Liberec and Sheffield United.
Bruce has fielded him as a striker in the 2-1 defeat against Preston North End. The winger worked hard in the first 45 minutes and feels he is getting better.
According to reports from The Chronicle, Bruce is an admirer of Aarons. The Newcastle boss signed him on loan at Sheffield Wednesday last season, and he wants to give him a fair chance after the winger was frozen out under Rafa Benitez.
However, many Newcastle fans believe that he is simply not good enough for the Magpies, and the club should consider selling him this summer.

Unfortunately he is not good enough.

He’s had quite a few already tbf, he’s always looked like he could be a good player but never seems to progress, Championship quality in my opinion, no better than Murphy.

Fresh start? He’s had many a chance and never taken any of them

He is worse than Atsu, Murphy, Richie and Muto in that position let alone Almiron and possibly Saint Maximin.

More opportunities? How many times can you let someone fail at their job before you realise they just cant do it. This isn’t a charity or ‘do your best’.

Has had plenty, simply not good enough.

Aarons was without a squad number after failing to get into Newcastle’s Premier League squad last season, but he is expected to be a part of Bruce’s plans going forward.
