Earlier today we reported that Sammy Ameobi was believed to have already signed a new contract at Newcastle and then set straight off for Cardiff, where he was expected to sign a year long loan deal.

Both clubs have now confirmed the deals, with Ameobi signing a new two year contract at St James Park.

This was then followed by Cardiff City revealing that the winger had indeed agreed a year long loan, taking him up to 30 June 2016.

Cardiff City CEO Ken Choo welcomed Sammy Ameobi to the Welsh club:

“We’re delighted to have Sammy on board, having hand-picked him specifically for his creativity and skill.

“Sammy has Barclays Premier League experience to the tune of more than 50 top-flight appearances.

“We will continue to search for the right players who have specific skill sets and good character.”

    Some fans acting like we are better than Swansea and the fact they want our player is overlooked in favour of bagging out our own squad.  Like it or not, Swansea are miles ahead of us right now, so without a Man City style spending spree on the cards, I question the judgement in letting a player leave that another Premiership club want for the coming season.  If we had better, or at least looked like getting better in then fine, however with a squad as thin as ours, Sammi is certainly not the first name i’d be putting on the out-the-door list.
