Shola Ameobi's proposed move to Ipswich has been put on hold after the striker's medical showed up a hamstring injury.

The injury was sustained in pre-season with Newcastle and the former England Under-21 international is unlikely to be fit before the end of the August transfer window, so Town are now exploring other options.

Shola Ameobi's proposed move to Ipswich has been put on hold after the striker's medical showed up a hamstring injury.

The injury was sustained in pre-season with Newcastle and the former England Under-21 international is unlikely to be fit before the end of the August transfer window, so Town are now exploring other options.

Ipswich boss Jim Magilton said: “It's disappointing but you have to be careful with hamstring injuries and we don't want a repeat of last season, when Shefki Kuqi joined us and suffered a hamstring injury in his first game.”

Norwich had been linked with the 26-year-old before Town agreed a fee with the Magpies.
