Hull City Ready To Swoop For Ameobi


Hull City are poised to make a £2M swoop for Newcastle United striker Shola Ameobi.

Shola Ameobi – seems in demand

News today in the People is that the former England Under-21 striker is now also wanted by Hull City.

The news on Ameobi is that he has not been turned on by potential moves to Ipswich Town and Stoke City, because he would like to stay in the North East.

So it would appear that moving to Hull would suit Ameobi and his new bride, since he would not need to move too far away from his Newcastle base.

But the fee mentioned in the report is only £2M, and he will not be allowed to leave the Tyneside for that kind of money.

The price Newcastle want is £4M, and with so many clubs seeming to be interested in the 6’3″ striker, who has lots of Premier league experience, they should be able to get the full £4M.

The only problem we can see at Hull is whether they will be able to afford Shola’s rather substantial wages.

But once he returns from his honeymoon, it seems he will have a number of decent offers from good clubs to sort though, with his new wife.

Comments welcome.

    Just Go! I don`t care where but just go!
    Cowgate Kestrels are after a Striker I hear.

    I`ve never known such a dreadful player have such an high opinion of himself. Can`t wait to see the back of him. Even Stoke sussed him out after 2 games. He`s not even good enough for the Championship yet somehow he`s played in Newcastles first team on & off for 8 painful years.

    JUST GO PLEASE, I`LL CARRY YOU DOWN THERE!

    If we could get more than 3.5 mil, we should wait for better offers.
