Newcastle United’s coach Rafa Benitez has recalled Sammy Ameobi from his loan spell at Bolton Wanderers.

The 24-year-old, whose contract at the St James’ Park expires at the end of this season, last featured for the Magpies in 2015 and his future had seemed away from the EFL Championship high flyers, with the Trotters hoping to make his deal permanent.

But a combination of his impressive showings - four goals in 24 appearances for Phil Parkinson’s side - and loss of influential players such as Mohamed Diame and Christian Atsu to African Cup of Nations duty, leaves the Spaniard no option but to hand the former Nigeria U-20 international another chance.

“He has done well with Bolton. He is a player that can play in the wide areas,” Benitez told Chronicle Live.

“We’ll bring him back and see if he is fine and can give us something. We have players going to the African Cup of Nations.

“We have to be sure we have some players. If he’d doing well why not?

“It depends on him if he can stay here or not. It depends how much he can give to us,” he concluded. (
