The ex-Newcastle winger made five appearances in January, his first competitive action since just before the first lockdown and he has pledged that the best is yet to come as he gets used to the demands of Carlos Corberan and becomes sharper.

Aarons said: “I am enjoying it a lot. The way we play and the coaching is perfect for me.

“More than rebuilding my career, I just want to play football and prove more to myself than anyone else with the level I feel I can perform week in, week out. That is the most important thing.

“I have not shown anywhere near my full capacity. This (Saturday) was my fourth game and the boys have played twenty and got used to the system.

“I came in three or four weeks ago and I have got to be honest with myself and say it will take me a few games to get to the level the boys are at.

“I have never experienced anything like it and it is different to be fair. It is demanding, but very good. The way we play is the way we train.

“The results obviously have not been great, which needs to change as much as possible. But for me, it has been very good. Playing Tuesday and Saturday, this was my fifth game in about ten months and my legs need to get used to it.”

On a frustrating draw with Stoke, he added: “The boys are very disappointed. It was a great chance to turn things around. It was a game we should have won.

“We started very quickly and got the goal and made a mistake with the penalty and gave them a way back into the game.

“It was pretty much like what happened against Millwall when we have to try and beat the (low) block and it is a lot more difficult than it looks.”
