Notts County striker Shola Ameobi considering retirement at end of season

Joe Jones

Shola Ameobi has revealed that he is mulling over whether to retire at the end of the season but will consider it properly in the summer.

The 36-year-old has enjoyed a fruitful career in the English game, with more than 300 appearances for Newcastle United, the club he is most associated with.

Ameobi has also impressed in Notts County colours since signing for Kevin Nolan last winter, and this season he has netted five and assisted four in 33 appearances.

“That love is certainly still there for me,” Ameobi told the Nottingham Post.

“It's a tough one. I think my mind wants to, but we just have to see where we are.

“I've always said that I will take stock at the end of the season, give myself a couple of weeks and see if I'm good to go.

“So at this point in time there's no yes or no. But what I do know is I'm still fully involved.

“I still want to help this team make history and I think obviously if you do that then it would definitely sort of make the job easier in terms of deciding.”
