"We certainly couldn't get any more experience than Shola and we are absolutely delighted with that," manager Steven Pressley told the club website.

Shola Ameobi spent 14 years at Newcastle United, where he received a winner's medal in 2010 when Newcastle lifted the Championship trophy. He holds the record for the most appearances as a substitute in the Premier League.

On leaving Newcastle in 2014, he briefly represented Gaziantep BB in Turkey and back in England with Crystal Palace before joining Bolton.
