Barca’s interest became public in September after months of rumors linking the England Under-21 international to other big clubs, including Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain, in the wake of City’s relegation from the Premier League

The Catalan club have reportedly offered £ 5million up front on a one-season loan with the option of a permanent deal of around £ 20million at the end of the season, which the Canaries would only consider if it was an obligation rather than an option Barca eventually signed Ajax right-back Sergino Dest for around £ 23million instead

« I’ve tried using it in a way that gives me a lot more confidence on the pitch and I like to think it shows, » Aarons said of the high-level transfer speculation , after Saturday’s 1-0 victory at Middlesbrough which sent City to the top of the league table

« You can use it in a way and let it turn into a kind of arrogance or you can use it as confidence and that’s what I did

« So it’s been really good and I feel like I can show a lot, especially at this level »

The 20-year-old is the only outfield player to complete every minute of league action for Daniel Farke’s side so far this season, winning the penalty that Teemu Pukki converted for the win at the Riverside

He continued, « Your mind is all over the place and obviously as soon as that is over I’m the type of player who can put it in the back of my head and next it is gone and all the focus was the

« So it’s been good since then and to have as many wins as we have now and to be undefeated for a number of games »

Jamal Lewis and Ben Godfrey were sold to Newcastle and Everton, while regular speculation surrounded players like Aarons, Todd Cantwell and Emi Buendia after relegation with the transfer window still open five weeks after the start of the championship season

« In the summer, there is no lie except to say that it was busy and a time of madness of course », he admits

« Now that the league is in flight it has been good to show our quality, everyone knows what quality we have, but it’s about showing it and being on top of the league, I would say that shows that

But with the Canaries in the lead after 12 games, Aarons is hoping the January transfer won’t be so much of a distraction, though promotion back into the top flight still seems a realistic possibility at this point.

« There was always this song in your head, not knowing how we’re going to do, a new team, » right-back concluded.

« We obviously have a lot of quality that was here in the last (league) season and I knew that, and I knew that if we all came together we would be among them

« Going into January with the team doing as well as they are right now is obviously better than starting the summer and you don’t really know how the team is going to gel and how everyone is going to do it. »
