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.

    This is actually a good move by both parties but sadly probably about a year or two too late.  The club need to learn from this and start to do the right things in developing the players.
    Ideally a player in form will be brought in to the senior side, play some first team matches, even from the bench, then once he’s shown something send him loan to another Premiership Club, with a release clause if he isn’t starting (or at least coming off the bench) so he can come back.  No more of this loan moves to 2nd division clubs or Scottish strugglers.  Those won’t help their progression and if that is all they are capable of then get rid of them as they aren’t good enough.

    No doubt he will go out on loan and suffer an injury in the first week and come back to Newcastle to rest up for the next twelve months. Give him away. Keep him here and its another backward step.
