No new deal is in place, but Ameobi has insisted that he is determined to make sure that Newcastle do not go down to the Championship.
“This is my home, I support Newcastle. I am hoping we can put in a good performance and get the points we need to stay up.”
Newcastle fans will find Ameobi’s comments encouraging, as they need all the players to be focused on Sunday’s massive game against West Ham United at home.
John Carver’s side and Hull City are the two teams who are still in danger of getting relegated from the English top flight, with Queens Park Rangers and Burnley having already back gone down to the Championship.
Heading into Sunday’s final round of matches, Newcastle find themselves 17th in the standings with 36 points from 37 games.
The Magpies will face West Ham at St. James’ Park, while Hull - who are two points behind them - will take on Manchester United at the KC Stadium.
A win for Newcastle will guarantee them Premier League survival, but for a team who have lost nine of their last 10 league matches, picking up all three points will be tough.
