Bolton Wanderers have completed the signing of Sammy Ameobi from Newcastle United on a free transfer. The 25-year-old has returned to the Macron Stadium having already donned the Whites jersey last season.
The winger had a fairly successful stint with Bolton last season as he found the net four times in 24 appearances. Ameobi has been with the club as the Championship club are currently in Scotland for their pre-season camp. He didn’t take part in the 2-1 win against Arbroath on Tuesday but got a feel of the first team when he was picked in the starting lineup against Dundee United on Friday.
Bolton registered a 2-1 win over the Scottish side and Ameobi made a very healthy impression on the pitch. Born and brought up in Newcastle, the winger spent a significant span of his career at St James Park but failed to make a mark of his own.
In 70 games for the Magpies, he had netted four goals alongside registering eight assists for them. He was released by the Toon after his contract got expired last month and Bolton took this opportunity to wrap up a deal for the player.
The Bolton player revealed he is very thankful to the gaffer for giving him another opportunity. “It feels great to be back. I’m very familiar with Bolton now.
“The gaffer was massive for me last season. He helped me rebuild my confidence and I believe he gets the best out of me.”
Ameobi represented the English U-21 side but has been unable to take it to the next level. He also has two caps for the Nigerian U-20 side and has decided to represent the African country.
He could be an asset at the Macron Stadium for Phil Parkinson who is pretty impressed with his determination and effort. The winger has been signed on a one year contract but if he manages to impress the manager, he will have the chance to make his stay a bit longer.
Having played at the Macron Stadium before, he is quite well acquainted with the atmosphere and won’t have much problem in acclimatising with the current condition. Bolton earned a promotion to the Championship from League One and Ameobi was one of the architects of their inspiring campaign.
Parkinson is confident that the player would bring the requisite qualifications as they will be launching a bid to earn a promotion to the English top tier.
