JFK's New Deals: Shola renews
Whether it's a mark of our new found status as relegation dogfighters or Joe Kinnear's sheer lack of squad numbers, Shola Ameobi has signed a new deal keeping him with the club until 2012. Shola has scored 3 in 14 this season, topping up the 49 in 244 he has for the club. The man himself says:
'I'm delighted to sign a new deal and commit my future to Newcastle United. I hadn't played for a while and had to prove myself again. Thankfully I believe I did that. Now I can look forward to playing a lot more games for Newcastle, which didn't look likely a few months ago.
I believe I can do that and now my future is in order I can focus on getting it right on the pitch. I am confident I can do it and the club are also, which they have shown by their faith with the contract. Now it's down to me to prove that.'
