Shola Ameobi is yet to hear from Newcastle United over a new contract offer.

The Journal says Alan Pardew has been keen to tie the long-serving forward down to a new deal, but Ameobi’s agent Steve Denos has revealed there has been “no dialogue” between the club and the forward yet, and his future is clouded by increasing uncertainty.

Ameobi’s advisers will seek fresh talks with the club now that Joe Kinnear – who spoke effusively about the striker when he was manager at the club – has been appointed United’s new director of football.
