We had expressed some concern about what happens to Sammy Ameobi, if Newcastle are successful in bringing Wilfried Zaha on loan in January, after the 21 year-old Zaha has seen almost no playing time at the Red Devils under new manager Davide Moyes.
Sammy Ameobi – could be sent out on loan
And the Journal today is reporting that Alan Pardew is looking to loan out Sammy Ameobi, along with other players such as Haris Vuckic and Gael Bigirimana.
All three players are on the fringes of the Newcastle first team, and would be better served if they could have first team football through the end of the season.
Middlesbrough are said to be interested in taking Sammy again, and former club Coventry are interested in taking Gael Bigirimana on loan – but Gael should be playing at least Championship football, given the progression he’s made since he arrived on Tyneside with 25 first team appearances last season.
The deadline for “emergency” loan moves is November 28th, which is Thanksgiving Day over here in the US.
And it doesn’t necessarily bode well for Sammy’s future that Newcastle’s manager wold prefer to bring Zaha in, at the expense of playing time for Sammy Ameobi, but in any case whatever happens – Sammy needs first team playing time somewhere.
And if Sammy is sent out on loan before the end of the month, we could assume that means the chances of Newcastle getting Zaha on loan in January are therefore good.
