Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has cooled talk of Shola Ameobi moving to QPR.

The striker has been linked with the Rs this week.

But Pardew said: "He's been a good player at this football club and a great character and leader here.

"My position is clear on all players here.

"If there is a situation where it is right for the player and right for the club, we will move them on.

"In Shola's case that isn't where it's at."
