Wolves not offering Shola Ameobi contract

23 September 2015, 12:20

London - Wolverhampton Wanderers have withdrawn the opportunity to sign former Super Eagles striker Shola Ameobi, the manager of the Championship club Kenny Jackett has revealed.

The ex Newcastle hero featured in an Under 21 Barclays Premier League Division Two fixture against Swansea City on Monday night and the powers that be at the Molineux decided against offering him a contract after seeing him in action, but thanked him for the time he spent training with the club.

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.
