West Brom are set to wrap up the signing of Newcastle United striker Shola Ameobi in a £2.5 million deal.

He has also been chased by Norwich, Ipswich and Stoke, where he was on loan last season.

The signing of Ameobi will take Albion boss Tony Mowbray's spending on strikers this summer to £8.3m.

He paid £3.5m for Aston Villa's Luke Moore and £2.3m to Hearts for Roman Bednar.
