Not too surprising news today, that Glenn Roeder is interested in taking Shola Ameobi to Norwich City in the summer.
Shola Ameobi – Glenn Roeder wants the player at Norwich
Glenn always thought highly of Shola when he managed Newcastle, and during that time Shola scored a number of goals for Newcastle, so it’s not too surprising that Norwich City would be interested in the player.
In fact we think Shola would be good for Norwich under the coaching of Glenn Roeder and Lee Clark.
But what we don’t know is whether Norwich can come up with the Â£4M fee, or pay Shola sufficient wages to make it an attractive deal to him.
But Norwich did release former Newcastle player Darren Huckerby yesterday, so the way is open for them to bring in a top striker.
It turns out that Stoke City are also wavering on Shola, who has hardly been impressive during his loan spell at the Potters, having only started 3 games at the club, but he does have vast experience in the Premier league, which is what Stoke will be looking for over the summer.
We wouldn’t be at all surprised if Shola ends up signing for Norwich, and it could be a good move for the Newcastle local boy, as he could score a number of goals for them in the Championship.
