Shola Ameobi to feature for Wolves U21s

21 September 2015, 18:56

London - Former Nigeria international Shola Ameobi is thrashing out an agreement with Championship club Wolverhampton Wanderers, but will first have to prove his fitness to coach Kenny Jackett having been inactive for exactly six months.

On Monday, the technical crew will observe the 33 year old at close quarters in the Under 21 Premier League Division 2 fixture, against Swansea City before making a decision on whether to offer him a contract.

Manager Kenny Jackett is aware of the qualities the striker has and has admitted that he will add more firepower to his attack if he is eventually signed.

''Shola is down for a few days and will play for the under-21s tonight at Swansea,'' Jackett told wolves.co.uk.

''We will see how he does in the game as to whether we extend and see whether he can bring some experience to our frontline.

''With his power and his size, ability to hold the ball up and presence in the 18-yard box, is he someone who can offset the forwards we have and give us some balance.''

Shola Ameobi played at Newcastle United for most of his career but had brief spells at Stoke City, Crystal Palace and Gaziantep BB.
