Ipswich boss Magilton admits deal unlikely for Newcastle's Ameobi

Ipswich boss Jim Magilton admits their pursuit of Newcastle striker Shola Ameobi has gone cold.

"We have not heard a dickie bird from him, his agent or Newcastle, so I imagine he has gone back to Newcastle," Magilton told the East Anglian Daily Times.

"I had a conversation with his agent about him as part of the search to bring in the right sort of people who can take us to the next level."
