Eurosport has reported that Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp is eager to bring the Newcastle United striker Shola Ameobi to Fratton Park this month.
The move might not be a feasible one at this stage though. Although there is more than a whisper of a wind of change blowing through St. James’ park, newly appointed Geordie manager Kevin Keegan is said to have confidence in his senior players and was full of praise for Ameobi at the weekend.
Yet the doubt lingers on whether Amoebi can fight his way at Newcastle. New strikers are likely to be imported this month to St. James’ Park and although Ameobi has loads of experience, he isn’t a very classy player.
