Newcastle United winger Sammy Ameobi is in the last year of his contract at Newcastle, and he was in danger of leaving the club just one year after his older brother Shola left – but there is news today that the 22 year-old is in contract negotiations his gome town club.
Sammy Ameobi – news of a new contract
Sammy has played very well this season, and he has already made 13 appearances for the club with one superlative goal after 7 seconds of the second half at Tottenham – put through by a defense splitting pass from another local lad – Jack Colback.
We don’t know if the news being reported is true – since it would be a decent guess that Newcastle are now interested in signing the lad to a contract extension given his excellent form for the club.
Alan Pardew has challenged Sammy this season to produce the form that will get him a new contract at Newcastle, and to be fair to the lad – this is the best he’s ever played for Newcastle and fingers crossed – he’s also been free of injury so far.
We wouldn’t be at all surprised if Sammy does get a new contract, and if players like Mehdi Abeid, Rolando Aarons and Ayoze Perez keep playing like they’ve been playing, they could also get new improved contracts.
Sammy has now played 52 times with 3 goals for Newcastle, and he’s got a long way to go before equalling his brother’s record at the club.
Shola played 397 time for Newcastle United from 2000 through last year and scored 79 goals.
