The former Newcastle United youngster was featuring for FC Edmonton.

There has been an Ameobi at Newcastle United this week.

But it is not cult icon Shola Ameobi, not even Sammy, but the middle Ameobi who has been at the club this week.

Tomi Ameobi had an unremarkable career in England. He was at Newcastle United until 2005 before joining the youth set-up at Leeds United and eventually making a handful of appearances. He also had brief spells at Scunthorpe United, Doncaster Rovers, Grimsby Town and Mansfield Town before dropping into non-league football with Forest Green and Whitley Bay.

He left England in 2011 and went to play in Iceland and Finland before heading to Canada in March 2014 - signing with NASL team FC Edmonton.

Ameobi, who was with Newcastle United from 2003-2005 was at Newcastle this week taking on their under-21s for the Canadian side.

The 27-year-old was snapped in action in the game as the Newcastle youngsters drew 2-2 with the Canadian side at Little Benton.

Ameobi even managed to score in the game - starting the comeback after Luke Charman and Callum Roberts had given Newcastle's youngsters the lead. Canadian under-20 international Sadi Jalali scored the equaliser.

It was certainly great to see an Ameobi back at Newcastle United, hopefully the youngest, Sammy, can become a first-team regular when he returns to the club.
