The Evening Chronicle today is reporting that West Bromwich Albion are ready to grant Newcastle United striker Shola Ameobi his wish of staying in the Premier League.
Shola Ameobi – lots of clubs pursuing him
New Premier League club WBA want to take the former England Under-21 international to The Hawthorns, and it’s been rumored for a few days now that WBA would like to sign the player.
Shola is currently on his honeymoon, and WBA will contact him when he returns next week.
But there are lots of clubs interested in Shola, including Norwich City, Ipswich Town, Hull City, Stoke City and maybe even others.
There is news almost every day that another club is interested in the Newcastle striker, and that’s because nothing will be done until Shola returns from his honeymoon.
Only yesterday, there was news that Norwich City were interested, but with so many clubs in for Shola, Newcastle should be able to ensure we get the full Â£4M we are asking for Ameobi.
He would be especially valuable to the newly promoted sides, Hull, Stoke and WBA, all of whom seem to want the player.
Shola has stacks of experience playing the Premier League and he would be a good buy for any one of the clubs pursuing him.
Shola would like to move so he is still near Tyneside, but we also expect he would like to continue playing in the PL.
Shola will also want maintain the current substantial wage he’s getting at Newcastle, particularly after just being married.
So the young boy has some decisions to make when he returns next week, but we think he will quickly move to another club, once he does get back on Tyneside.
