Middlesbrough to offer Riggott for Newcastle striker Ameobi

Middlesbrough are set to offer defender Chris Riggott to Newcastle in a swap bid for Shola Ameobi.

Toon boss Sam Allardyce is reluctant to lose Ameobi with Obafemi Martins set to leave for Nigeria's African Nations Cup campaign.

The Mail on Sunday says Boro hope to convince Allardyce by offering Riggott in exchange.
