Apparently, Portsmouth are targeting striker Shola Ameobi!

News is that Harry Redknapp is a big fan of the player who has struggled to make his mark this season after recovering from a hip injury.

The former England Under-21 International is said to be leaving at St James' Park with Michael Owen, Mark Viduka and Obafemi Martins all ahead of him in the pecking order.

Norwich City's Glenn Roeder tried to get him on loan, but the club want a cash deal.

Keegan: "I asked Shola if we could get 30 minutes out of him off the bench, and he played 90 minutes (against Bolton).

"It wasn't ideal for him, but I thought he did terrifically well for us."
