Newcastle attacker Rolando Aarons’ move to Huddersfield broke down because the necessary paperwork was filed just two minutes after the transfer deadline.
Aarons was all set for a move to the Championship club but the Premier League and EFL refused to sanction the switch because the relevant forms were sent at 5.02pm, causing obvious disappointment to all parties.
It means the forward is now facing months of sitting on the sidelines at St James’ Park, obviously an unideal scenario.

There appears little hope of having the deal resurrected.
Aarons is into the final year of his contract at Newcastle.
A former England youth international, he has frequently been sent out on loan by Newcastle in recent seasons.
Aarons has been loaned several times by Newcastle, including to Sheffield Wednesday
Aarons has taken in spells at Hellas Verona, Slovan Liberec, Sheffield Wednesday, Wycombe Wanderers and Motherwell.
He has played just 27 times for Newcastle since joining the club in 2014, with his most recent competitive appearance coming in December 2017.
