Just before the England game kicked off, Bolton Wanderers announced that Sammy Ameobi had signed a new two year deal with the club.
The Nigerian winger scored four times in 36 games for Wanderers last season, including that sensational solo goal against Bristol City in February.
Upon signing the new deal, Ameobi stated:
“It’s great to have signed a new deal because this place means a lot to me. I’m really excited to be back and I can’t wait to get started.
“I spoke to the manager and he knows me very well. I get on so well with everyone here and it’s such a wonderful environment to work in. That was a huge factor in me wanting to stay here.”
It’s also stated that Ameobi turned down other Championship clubs in order to remain with Bolton.
On his day, Ameobi can be a key figure for Wanderers. So let’s hope we see some fantastic match winning performances this coming season.
