Hull City aren't giving up on off contract Newcastle United striker Shola Ameobi.

The Daily Mail says Ameobi could be lining up alongside David Villa and Frank Lampard at New York City FC.

The out-of-contract Newcastle striker, 32, is also wanted by Hull City and Sydney FC in Australia.

Tigers boss Steve Bruce hopes the promise of Premier League football will convince his fellow Geordie to stay in England.
