Newcastle United have been dealt a huge injury blow ahead of the Tyne-Wear Derby match against Sunderland.

Rolando Aarons has suffered an injury setback that will see the youngster miss tomorrow’s Capital One Cup quarter-final tie against Tottenham Hotspur and Sunday’s derby against Sunderland.

The 19-year old has been sidelined since early last month with a hamstring injury, and is yet to return to full fitness.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew had hoped Aarons would be back in time for the cup game tomorrow. However, the England Under-20 international is expected to miss a further two weeks.

Aarons made his way on the scene during pre-season after signing his professional contract last year.

The winger has made three started twice for the Magpies, whilst making a substitute in the Premier League on three occasions, netting against Crystal Palace and Manchester City.
