Nigerian player Shola Ameobi is set for a return to the English Premier League with West Brom linked with move for him.

Ameobi left Newcastle United last season, signing for Turkish side, Gaziantep a one-year deal with them.

However the 34-year old has become a free agent after leaving Gaziantep following the non-renewal of his contract.

With the uncertainty over the future of Saido Berahino, West Brom are looking at bolstering their attack in order to beat the drop.

Tony Pulis looks to beef up his forward line for the rest of the season as Brown Ideye has not been impressive since moving to the club in a deal worth £10m from Dynamo Kiev, scoring just twice, and Georgios Samaras is set to join Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia.

Ameobi scored 79 goals in 397 appearances for Newcastle before leaving St James’ Park last year after 14 years. He moved to Gaziantep in August but left in December.

West Brom, who are 14th in the Premier League, go to Birmingham in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday.
