Long-serving Ameobi has been linked with a move away from St James’s Park as he enters the final year of his St James’s Park contract, with Middlesbrough ready to offer him a move to the Riverside.
But with the club desperately short of strikers – and progress still awaited in the transfer market – Pardew is in no mood to let the 31-year-old leave the club.
Alan Pardew: “Shola’s a player that’s under contract here.
“He’s not made any noises to me that he wants to leave.
“Certainly, with my striker situation at the moment, I need as many as I can get.
“I’m pushing Joe to get a transfer in.
“I think we need a boost now. We’re in a situation where we want to progress now. The team are in a good place.”
