Ameobi pleads with Newcastle over price tag

Newcastle's Shola Ameobi has asked the club not to scare off potential suitors with an unrealistic asking price for his services.

Injuries and loss of form have restricted the striker to just a handful of appearances for the north-east club over the last two seasons and the 26-year-old admits the time may have come to look elsewhere for first-team action.

The former England Under-21 star was loaned to Stoke last term and looked set for a permanent switch to the Britannia Stadium, but both that transfer and a subsequent proposed deal with West Brom fell through due to Newcastle's demands.

Ameobi has called on the St James' Park hierarchy to be realistic over his value.

'I hope it will not be the case that I get priced out of a move,' he said.

'If the club don't want me, they know that I've been a faithful servant, so, in a perfect world, being allowed to leave for a reasonable price would happen.'

Ameobi added: 'If regular football doesn't happen, I'll have to go somewhere else. But I'm still hoping I can get a chance here.'
