Certainly this will not be good news for Shola Ameobi as he
had also been linked with a shift to Huddersfield Town few days before he
started training with Wolves but The Terriers have kept mum on his status up to
this very moment.
''We are always looking and if we can strengthen we will –
we do feel we are light in that area,'' Kenny Jacket said on Tuesday night
after the Capital Cup clash against Middlesbrough.
''It won’t be Shola - we thank him for coming down for a few
days but it is not going to go any further.
''He has been a credit to himself and I am sure will benefit
from the training and the game he has played.''
Shola Ameobi spent the second part of last season at Crystal
Palace but his deal was not renewed this summer after managing only 38 minutes
of game time in the Premier League.For
