Middlesbrough have opened talks to sign former Newcastle United winger Sammy Ameobi, as reported by Football Insider.
The English winger is set to be a free agent when his Nottingham Forest contract expires on June 30th [Transfermarkt].
Currently speaking, Boro are set to be the front-runners for his signature and have begun discussions regarding a deal, as Neil Warnock’s men plot an assault on the Sky Bet Championship next campaign [Football Insider].
Would Ameobi be a good signing for Middlesbrough?
Of course, Ameobi already has previous experience of life at the Riverside Stadium, having signed on loan from Newcastle United for the Teeside club back in 2013/14 [BBC].
In 2020/21, the 6ft 4in wide man notched five goal contributions in 34 appearances for Nottingham Forest; three goals and two assists [Transfermarkt].
In light of this news, loads of Boro fans took to Twitter to convey their feelings on a potential deal for Ameobi.
Boro fans react:
Replying to the Football Insider Twitter page, here is how some Middlesbrough fans reacted to these latest developments:
“In all seriousness, it’s very low risk so I’m not that bothered.. a game winner on his day, never found consistency.. hopefully he can find it with us. I’ve always said since Warnock signed on another year that I’d rather us sign a bunch of frees on 1/2 year deals and loans”
