The Newcastle United winger Rolando Aarons will spend the next four months on loan to a League One side after his spell at Sheffield Wednesday last season.
Aarons impressed for Wednesday, who were credited with an interest in bringing him back to Hillsborough throughout the summer transfer window.
But no such move materialised for the Jamaica-born winger, who was later left in limbo after he failed to make Newcastle’s 25-man Premier League squad.

And with the deadline for most European and English third- and fourth-tier clubs closing in, Aarons opted to join Wycombe Wanderers on Monday.
Though Wycombe are currently fifth in League One, landing Aarons will be seen as something of a coup – facilitated, perhaps, by the inability of sides higher up the ladder to enter the market.
Sheffield Wednesday ultimately signed the 23-year-old’s fellow Newcastle winger, Jacob Murphy, on a season-long loan deal.
Achraf Lazaar, who spent the second half of last season with Aarons under the Newcastle manager Steve Bruce at Wednesday, is another Magpies player being tipped to leave ahead of the 5pm deadline.
Lazaar was linked with a move to Cosenza at the weekend.
