Ex-Toon coach John Carver is somehow planning to convince Newcastle United’s Shola Ameobi – who has recently been playing for Stoke on loan – to leave England and move to Canada, playing for woeful Toronto FC in the weird and craptastic league that is MLS. Carver, however, remains optimistic about his chances:
“Shola is a kid I brought through the system at Newcastle United, and a kid I know an awful lot about.
”If I can get Shola into this football club he would be a huge, huge asset for us.”
Would Ameobi really go to MLS – three letters guaranteed to make any player’s heart sink…
