News today that a couple of Championship clubs could be keen to take Shola Ameobi this summer.
Shola Ameobi – could seek move this summer
There is some uncertainty surrounding the future of Shola at his home town club, and it seems to be coming from the player himself, who not surprisingly wants more playing time, which he will not get at Newcastle in the next couple of seasons.
Middlesbrough and Sheffield Wednesday are the two Championship clubs who are interested in the 31 year-old striker, and Ameobi could do very well in the Championship, with his powerful play up front.
We’ll have to wait and see if Shola wants to leave the club he has played for since 2000, when he made his debut under the great Bobby Robson, when Shola was just 18 years old.
But he has had a chequered career at Newcastle and didn’t play much at all this year, and with Newcastle likely to bring two new strikers in this summer, and Adam Campbell coming through the ranks quickly – the future doesn’t look all that bright for the big man.
Shola has one year left on his contract, and Newcastle could probably get up to £2M for their long term striker, and that fee could be used towards the couple of strikers the Magpies want to recruit thuis summer.
