Toon Try And Keep Magilton Interested By Offering Ameobi On Loan!

The two clubs agreed a fee for the 26-year-old and he spent Monday undergoing a medical at Portman Road ... which he failed.

The hamstring injury is unlikely to clear up before the end of the transfer window and Magilton has decided to call off the transfer for the time being.

But Newcastle are trying to get Ipswich to take him on loan, like the deal that took Ameobi to Stoke last season, and they will have the option to buy him in the January transfer window.

Magilton: "It's disappointing but you have to be careful with hamstring injuries.

"We don't want a repeat of last season when Shefki Kuqi joined us and suffered a hamstring injury in his first game."
