David Moyes is in talks to sign Newcastle forward Sammy Ameobi.

The Real Sociedad manager has met the United player’s agent in Spain this week according to The Telegraph.

Moyes is working within a tight budget at the Spanish club and can sign Ameobi on a pre-contract now, ahead of the summer when his contract comes to an end.

Money would still have to be paid in the form of compensation for his development but it would be well within the former Everton manager’s budget.

Newcastle United are believed to have made a new offer but left Sammy Ameobi underwhelmed, not in terms of the length of the contract but the money on offer.
