Sammy Ameobi looks set to extend his stay at Newcastle before heading out on a season long loan deal with Championship side Cardiff City believed to be interested in signing the winger.
Ameobi enjoyed his best return in a United shirt last season but his 15 starts were maybe more indicative of the club’s plight – and lack of squad depth - rather than players ability. Ameobi has spent a number of years on Tyneside and very much like his brother – Shola – promised so much but ultimately failed to deliver. A loan spell to local rivals Middlesbrough back in 2013 was intended to kick start his career gaining first team experience but the player was once again confined to the reserves on his return. With only 21 BPL starts spread across 5 season’s time is running out for Ameobi and dropping down a level to guarantee himself some game time may not be such a bad move for the former England under-21.

Sammy Ameobi picked up a knock in training leading up to Newcastle United's hosting of Leicester City tomorrow, putting his availability in doubt.

Normally on the fringes of first team action, Ameobi made the most of a substitution appearance in the Magpies' last match, providing an assist for Papiss Cisse that would help secure a draw with Swansea City. Alan Pardew has already confirmed Gabriel Obertan will be one of his starting wide midfielders, so the opposite flank will likely be occupied by Yoan Gouffran.
