Pardew: Ameobi fantastic for Newcastle - on and off pitch

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew was delighted with Shola Ameobi's contribution in their draw with Tottenham.

Pardew was pleased with both the overall performance and Ameobi's contribution.

He said: "He is somebody that since I have been here has been absolutely brilliant.

"I looked at him and I thought his reputation didn't coincide with the player he is.

"Since I have been here, he's fitter, scoring goals, impacts the game, great in the dressing room, and I was so pleased for him that he got that goal."
