Huddersfield Town has confirmed their second signing of the January window – with Newcastle United winger Rolando Aarons joining on a permanent deal.
Striker Danny Grant moved from Irish club Bohemians on Saturday, and Aarons has continued to bolster the Terriers’ attacking department by penning a long-term deal at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Aarons spent more than eight years at St James’ Park, although the 25-year-old has been restricted to just 25 appearances for the Magpies – with the last of those coming more than three years ago against Manchester City.
Can you reach of these 17 ex-Huddersfield Town players just by looking at these 3 clues?
Having spent time on loan in Italy, Czech Republic and Scotland, as well as brief spells at both Sheffield Wednesday and Wycombe, the winger has found a permanent new home in Yorkshire, although he hasn’t made a competitive outing since playing for Motherwell back in early-March.
Huddersfield are a working progress under the guidance of Carlos Corberan, but the capture of Aarons is another positive step in the right direction.
And here’s how the Terriers faithful have been reacting to the signing of the Magpies man:

If he's injury prone he'll fit in well with our other forwards 😂
Seriously though, could be a star for us and a decent sale price when Carlos has turned him round #htafc

Lots of potential for Carlos to work his magic on this guy. Has the ability but just hasn’t seemed to work out so far. Not gonna happen over night but give him the rest of the season to find his feet he could be an animal for us next season #htafc https://t.co/fj6TeG6CuR
