Shola Ameobi is prepared to leave Newcastle United this summer.

The striker comes off contract at the end of the season.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "Everyone knows my feeling about being at this club.

"We just have to see what happens. They might want to go in a different direction. That's fine by me as well.

"But I've always said as long as I'm wanted here, I'll be a Newcastle United player. We'll see what happens."
