Shola Ameobi: Weighing up offer from Sydney FC

Ameobi is a free agent after leaving Newcastle earlier their summer ending his 14-year association with the Magpies.

A number of English clubs and Major League Soccer sides are thought to be keepings tabs on Ameobi, but Sydney are hoping to win the race for the forward's signature.

The A-League side are believed to have made an offer to Ameobi as they look for a replacement for Alessandro Del Piero.

Ameobi is expected to make a decision on his future and Sydney's offer after playing for Nigeria at the World Cup.

The 32-year-old, who came through the ranks at Newcastle, scored 79 goals in 402 appearances for the club and is sure to have no shortage of admirers this summer.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
