Toon boss Alan Pardew was happy to loan him out to what he describes as a "good club" and it means that Ameobi can aid Boro's ailing promotion play-off push.
Ameobi told the Evening Chronicle: "He has faith in my ability, but he now needs to see some consistency from me.
"He is a big fan of sending young players on loan to get experience.
"I am trying to work on that on a daily basis. Hopefully I will be able to do that."
