Newcastle striker Ameobi urges Sammy to keep working hard

Shola Ameobi hopes kid brother Sammy Ameobi can be a regular for Newcastle United next season.

Ameobi would love to see his kid brother Sammy progress next term.

Having been on the field when he made his debut at Chelsea last May, Ameobi reflected to the Evening Chronicle: "It was great for us as a family to see Sammy come through.

"It does not happen very often, getting two brothers playing in the same team is quite rare.

"It is up to him now, he has made his debut for the first team.

"He just needs to get his application right and the rest will come because he has the ability in abundance, he just needs to keep on developing that."
