Report: Pardew wants reunion with Shola Ameobi at Palace

Crystal Palace are said to be interested in signing former Newcastle United man Shola Amoebi.

The Daily Mail reports that former Newcastle United striker Shola Ameobi could be set to link up with Alan Pardew again at Crystal Palace. 

Ameobi, who Pardew allowed to leave St. James' Park last summer, is a free agent after having his contract cancelled by Turkish side Gaziantep, and the paper claims he is being hunted by a trio of Premier League clubs.

The report states that the Eagles are joined by Hull City and West Bromwich Albion in their ambition to capture the experienced Nigerian international, who could represent a bargain addition.

Ameobi is no stranger to Premier League football and would need little time to adapt to the pace of the English top-flight as a result. 

A reunion with Pardew would certainly be an interesting prospect and it seems there is a possibility the transfer could go through.

The Eagles are known to be on the hunt for players who can improve their attacking threat and it appears that the addition of Yaya Sanogo from Arsenal has not entirely satisfied Pardew. 

Ameobi scored 79 goals during his 14 year stay with Newcastle and he would move back to the Premier League with a point to prove.
