Agent: 'No Ameobi deal'

Ipswich have not had a £4m bid accepted for Newcastle striker Shola Ameobi, according to the player’s agent.

Reports suggested Town had won the race for the former England Under-21 international, with East Anglia rivals Norwich also interested in the 26-year-old.

The Tractor Boys have refused to make any comment but Ameobi’s agent Steven Denos dismissed the reports as “speculation”.

He added in The Journal: “As far as I’m concerned, Ipswich have not put a bid in for Shola.

“There has certainly been no dialogue from Newcastle to me to the effect a bid has been submitted from any club at this stage.

“Our position is that we will be willing to talk to any club that puts a bid in to Newcastle that is acceptable.”
