Former Newcastle United striker Shola Ameobi is hoping to earn a deal at Bolton Wanderers.
Out-of-contract Ameobi – who spent the latter part of last season with Alan Pardew’s Crystal Palace – has trained with a number of Football League clubs in recent weeks.
Shola has got a good pedigree and might offer us something a little bit different. We’ll take a good look at him and make a decision from there.Neil Lennon
The 33-year-old has spent time wtih Wolverhampton Wanderers, Huddersfield Town and Sheffield Wednesday.
But he is yet to win a contract, and the Reebok Stadium club is Ameobi’s latest port of call.
Bolton manager Neil Lennon said: “Shola has got a good pedigree and might offer us something a little bit different.
“We’ll take a good look at him and make a decision from there.”
Ameobi’s 14-year first-team career at Newcastle came to an end last year.
Sammy Ameobi, his younger brother, has been loaned to Cardiff City by United.
