It looks like the transfer saga of Shola Ameobi may be over and he will moving to Ipswich Town, after completing his medical there yesterday.
Shola Ameobi – could sign today for Ipswich Town
But with the Shola transfer, nothing is certain, so weâ€™ll have to wait for the official announcement but all signs say the transfer has almost been completed.
Ipswich Town manager Jim Magilton has stated that the striker has completed a medical at the club and the deal could be finalized today.
The 26-year-old striker has been linked with Ipswich during the transfer window with rumors of a medical previously being denied until today.
Ipswich Town manager Jim Magilton said today:
“We have agreed a fee with Newcastle for Shola and he spent yesterday at the Club having a medical, we’ve had a good chat and things are moving on.”
“He will be with us again today and hopefully we can get it all tied up.”
This should be a good move for Shola, since it’s definitely time for him to leave his home town club.
It’s very likely that Keegan will bring in one more striker before the end of August, and we just cannot see the lad getting a game with Martins, Owen, Viduka and Smith all above him in the pecking order at the club.
We think he can do very well at Ipswich Town, which is one great club, with promotion hopes again.
