Last night the Daily Mail reported that West Brom have moved into pole-position to sign Shola Ameobi from Newcastle:
West Brom have made a late approach for Shola Ameobi.
The Newcastle forward still favours joining a club in the Premier League, despite Norwich City’s interest, and Tony Mowbray has the £3.5m to land the 26-year-old.
Ameobi’s agent must be wetting himself with excitement at all this, which is just starting to get a little annoying.
I hereby promise not to write anything else about Shola Ameobi until he signs for somebody – whoever it might be.
