Newcastle winger Sammy Ameobi has met two rival managers for face to face talks to discuss his next move.

Shola’s younger brother met Russell Slade at Cardiff City’s training ground on Tuesday to discuss a deal.

With Wales Online revealing that the Newcastle player had also met Wolves boss Kenny Jackett in recent deals to see what they would offer.

They also report that Sammy Ameobi will be at Newcastle’s training ground today for the first day of pre season training and is expected to meet new boss Steve McClaren before making a decision.

At midnight last night Sammy Ameobi was due to be out of contract and there had been no news as to whether he had signed the new NUFC deal as yet.

The reports from Wales believe the plan is for Sammy Ameobi to agree a new deal at St James Park and then go out on loan, with Cardiff and Wolves leading the chase.

Of course, there is the option of the player not signing his new Newcastle contract and agreeing a deal direct with Wolves, Cardiff or indeed any other club.

It would then be up to the two clubs to agree a fee, or else it would go to a tribunal who would decide what compensation should be paid to Newcastle United.
