West Brom challenge Palace for big Shola

West Bromwich Albion won't give Crystal Palace a clear run at former Newcastle United striker Shola Ameobi.

The Mirror says Eagles boss Alan Pardew wants his former Newcastle star after failing to agree a deal for Blackburn's £5million-rated forward Rudy Gestede.

Ameobi, 33, is a free agent after leaving Turkish side Gaziantep - with the Baggies also very keen.

Palace fans have been calling for a new striker this January but did see Marouane Chamakh return from injury to score twice in Saturday's FA Cup win at Southampton.
