Shola's a Magpie again

Written by Dan King

Former Newcastle favourite Shola Ameobi has joined Notts County until the end of the season.

The 35-year-old Nigeria international, who spent 14 years at St. James' Park, has linked up with former team-mate Kevin Nolan, who is now in charge of the League Two side.

After leaving Newcastle in 2014, he had a spell in Turkey before playing for Crystal Palace, Bolton and Fleetwood.

Ameobi will wear the number nine shirt for his new club, also nicknamed the Magpies.

Speaking to the official Notts County website, he said: "It's a huge honour for me to join a club like this, one of the founder members of the Football League.

"I know the manager and Alan Smith very well from our days at Newcastle so it has been great to join up with them again.

"I feel I can use my experience to help the club on and off the pitch and the manager will value that."
