Ameobi confirms crunch talks with Newcastle boss Hughton

Shola Ameobi admits he's held clear-the-air talks with Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton.

Ameobi has been linked with Blackpool and Hull City this past week.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "I've made my view known to the manager - he knows I want to play, like every other member of the squad.

"Last season was a bit disappointing with the injuries I had. I was raring to go this season.

"Obviously, Andy's flying high, and he's preferring Nobby (Nolan) up there, which is the manager's decision.

"I've made my points known to him. I just hope I can get my chance, and when it comes, I can take it."
