Newcastle United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern find it rather humorous that Shola Ameobi could be playing European football next season.
According to the The Mirror, Ameobi is wanted by Hull City who have qualified for the Europa League via their FA Cup Final appearance against Arsenal.
They may have lost that game in extra time but they qualify nonetheless because the Gunners had already qualified for Champions League football via their fourth-placed Premier League finish.
It is now thought that Steve Bruce wants to enhance his squad to cope with both competitions and he has listed the Newcastle striker along with Sunderland winger Sebastian Larsson as his main two targets.
Both players have a wealth of experience and are available on free transfers so will enhance the Tigers’ strength in depth.
Bruce also knows all about the options that Larsson can bring to a club having signed him for Birmingham City back in 2007 when Arsenal decided to sell the Swedish free-kick expert.
Hull City fans. Are Ameobi and Larsson ideal signings to make for your forthcoming Europa League campaign? Let us know your thoughts below.
