Top Youngster Could Still Leave Newcastle Next Summer

Sammy Ameobi’s contract at Newcastle runs out at the end of next June, and the 22 year-old will still need to show some consistency this season, if he is to get an extension of his contract and stay at his home town club beyond this season.

It’s do or die for Sammy this season, and he has to keep playing well,  if he is to get a new contract and stay on Tyneside.

Certainly he’s made a very decent start this season, and his goal into the second half at White Hart Lane that came within 7 seconds of the restart was simply sensational, and helped turn the game around in Newcastle’s favor.

This is what Sammy has said in the Shields Gazette today:

“It’s been a great few weeks,” “I’m really happy that I’m getting to play. Hopefully, I can kick on from here.”

“I’m playing for my career, a contract. I’m just working week in, week out.” “Hopefully, I can play against QPR and put in a good performance against them. We’ll see how it goes.”

“It would have been a dream come true to score on Sunday.” “I hit it and hoped for the best. Unfortunately, it didn’t go in, but most importantly we got the three points and we go into the international break on a high.”

“We’ve had a great few weeks. We have to reflect on that.” “We’ve got a couple of weeks without a game, but we can’t slack off. We’re going to be working until the international players come back.”

“Hopefully, we can get another three points against QPR.”

Those are good words from Sammy – and he talks about hitting that great shot last Sunday at the Hawthorns that bounced off the top of the cross-bar – it could so easily have been a goal.

Sammy is right to say he is playing for his career at Newcastle, and it’s be no means certain he will get a new deal.

So far this season Sammy has nine appearances and one goal for the side, and in total he’s played 48 times for his home town clubs with three goals.

And with Rolando Aarons and Gabby Obertan both out injured, it’s almost certain that Sammy will start at home to QPR a week on Saturday on the left wing.

Sammy has every motivation in the world to keep playing well for Newcastle this season, and we hope he can earn a new contract at Newcastle.

    I can’t understand why there tends to be such a negative attitude towards young Sammy.
    Had the ball he hit last week been a few inches lower it would have been hailed as one of the goals of the season. Right up there with those Cisse used to score in his pomp a couple of years ago.
    he’s only a young lad, and consistent performances week in,week out, only generally come later in a professional career.
    Give him a new contract. He could be a top player for us in the years ahead, and might even follow in his brother’s footsteps as a scourge of the mackems.

    Young Sammy isn’t young Sammy anymore. Its time he was approaching consistency. He’s not a teenager anymore.
