News is coming through from several sources that Shola Ameobi is keen to join West Brom, so that he can play under Tony Mowbray.
Â Shola Ameobi – appears to favor West Brom
Shola Ameobi appears ready to join West Brom, after sources close to the player said the player would be very happy to play under WBA manager, Tony Mowbray.
WBA are in negotiations with Newcastle on the transfer amount, and we understand that is around Â£3M,Â for the former England Under-21 player, whose only club has been Newcastle United.
A source close to Ameobi said:
“Shola is 26 now so this is a big move for him and he knows a manager like Tony Mowbray will help to develop him as a player.”
“Heâ€™s over his injury problems now and he just wants to get his head down and play.”
“He is keen to get his future sorted so ideally heâ€™d like to get things done and dusted in the next week or so.”
“A few clubs have shown an interest but he wants to go to West Brom.”
We think that both Newcastle and the player will want to move things along quickly, and we don’t expect the deal to take too long, once a fee has been agreed between the two clubs.
Shola should be able to do a job for WBA, as he looks to fully rehabilitate his career after his hip operation last year.
He’s now fully fit and we would expect he’ll be raring to go.
