Norwich keen on Newcastle striker Ameobi

Norwich City boss Glenn Roeder is moving for Newcastle striker Shola Ameobi.

Roeder would have had Ameobi on board for today's trip to Plymouth had it not been for a St James' Park injury crisis.

Ameobi, 26, has started just one Premier League game under Sam Allardyce. Roeder refused to name his man but said: "He's a real Premiership player but his manager doesn't fancy him."
