Newcastle’s Ferguson set for Birmingham City loan return

Have your say

NEWCASTLE winger Shane Ferguson could rejoin Birmingham City this week and link up with the club on their pre-season training camp in Ireland.

Ferguson ended last season on loan at St Andrew’s, and it seems Blues boss Lee Clark has pipped Wolves to sign Ferguson.

Pardew feels the Northern Ireland international needs more first-team games under his belt before he can realistically challenge for a place on Tyneside.

Bolton are hoping to sign striker Sammy Ameobi on loan. Ameobi had a spell at Middlesbrough last season.
