Ameobi open to stepping up his role at Newcastle

Newcastle United hero Shola Ameobi says he'd be open to stepping up his role with the club.

Ameobi has been linked with a key position with the academy as he works with the juniors.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "The Academy stuff is something I have always done. Even when I was a player I would go down in the afternoons to the Academy.

"If the Academy and club hadn't invested in me I wouldn't be where I am.

"It has always been a passion of mine.

"The Foundation too, is all about the community and what we can do."
