There are reports coming out of Norwich, principally from Rivals.net , that the Norwich City club may be close to a deal to sign Newcastle striker Shola Ameobi.
Shola Ameobi – moving to Norwich City?
Rivals.net is reporting that a source close to the Norwich club, suggests that Newcastle’s Shola Ameobi could be set for a move to Norwich, in a deal worth around Â£3.5m
The Nigerian born strikerÂ has already been linked with Stoke City, Ipswich Town, Hull City and WBA for the same amount.
It wouldn’t surprise us in the least if Shola moved to Norwich, because we believe he would just love to work again with Glenn Roeder, just love it.
Glenn was able to get the very best out of Ameobi, while managing Newcastle, and Shola averaged about a goal every 2 games for the former West Ham manager.
The only problem with Norwich was whether they could afford the fee of around Â£4M, and whether they could match Shola’s wage demands.
We think if they can do that then Shola would jump at the chance to join them, and could do very well for the East Anglia club.
The players agent, Steve Denos has already admitted that Norwich would be an attractive prospect for his client, and that Shola would have no worries teaming up with former Newcastle boss Glenn Roeder.
We’ll keep a check on the local Norwich papers and web sites, to see if anything else breaks on this news.
