Newcastle United winger Rolando Aarons will be out for eight weeks after breaking a bone in his foot.

The 20-year-old broke a metatarsal in the 21st-minute of the Magpies' 2-0 win against League Two side Cheltenham Town in the EFL Cup second round.

The former Bristol City trainee has played five games for Newcastle so far this season, starting twice.

Aarons, who joined from the Robins in 2014, recently signed a new five-year contract at St James' Park.

The Magpies have also announced that England Under-19 midfielder Adam Armstrong, 19, has signed a new four-year deal.
