Pardew Wants Toon Winger To Sign New Deal

 ... Sammy Ameobi, over the extension of his contract in the coming weeks.

The 22-year-old said during the summer "I am playing for my career this season", and he seems to have done enough to get a new deal.

He started the game against Chelsea and is very much a first team member.

He has made 11 appearances this campaign, scoring against Tottenham Hotspur in October.

He had a brief loan stint with Middlesbrough last season, but didn't set the Riverside alight, and they knocked back the chance to sign him.

Like his brother, Shola, he very much divides supporters, and he took as much stick as cheers on Saturday.

He blows hot and cold, and like Shola, you never know what you are going to get from him.

That can make him a "luxury player", which is acceptable when the team wins.

His current deal with Newcastle United expires on June 30, 2015.
