Fleetwood sign former Newcastle man Shola Ameobi


League One side Fleetwood Town have signed striker Shola Ameobi until the end of the season.

The 34-year-old former Nigeria international was released by Bolton Wanderers last month as they were unable to offer him a new deal due to their financial problems.

He is available for Fleetwood’s game at Port Vale on Saturday.

“In January we signed a number of younger players and it was vital to the group that we brought in a player with experience,” boss Steven Pressley told the club website.

“We certainly couldn’t get any more experience than Shola and we are absolutely delighted with that.
