Butt, Ameobi still locked in Newcastle contract talks, admits Kinnear

Nicky Butt and Shola Ameobi are still to settle terms over new deals with Newcastle United.

Toon boss Joe Kinnear told the Evening Chronicle: "They are all still negotiating with executive director (football) Dennis Wise.

"They have had two or three meetings this week.

"They have come back and suggested a certain figure and now it's just a case of meeting each other half-way down the line to sort things out.

"But I know there is a discrepancy as far as wages are concerned."
