Ameobi playing without pay at Bolton

02 December 2015, 07:21

Abuja - Super Eagles World cup 2014 forward Shola Amoebi who signed a season long deal with English Championship side Bolton Wanderers in October is yet too paid since joining the team.

The Trotters currently four points adrift at the bottom of the Championship table has so far featured Amoebi four times since his transfer and the Nigerian the third to play for the team has three goals to his name.

Austin Okocha former Nigeria captain was a big hit at the team captaining them although Blessing Kaku who later joined him failed to make a similar impact, it is Ameobi who is currently stuck in the team cash crunch issue.

34 year old Ameobi who last played for Crystal Palace in the premier league is best known for his exploits with Newcastle United, where his younger brother Sammy is currently attached to but presently out on loan to Cardiff City.

Bolton Wanderers have a massive debt of £172.9m and Trevor Birch was recently appointed as adviser to the club to help ease a takeover from owner Eddie Davies.

Davies is reportedly ready to take responsibility for the entire debt, in the hope it will help a new owner to come in as soon as possible.
