Wednesday keen on signing Ameobi
Wednesday coach Stuart Gray has confirmed that he has enquired about the 22-year-old's availability as he remains a fringe player at St James' Park.
The striker made four Premier League starts last season and is still waiting to score his first top-flight goal.
"We have spoken to Sammy's agent," Gray told The Sheffield Star.
"He is a quality player and he's shown that by playing in the Premier League.
"We will see what happens."
Azerbaijani businessman Hafiz Mammadov last week completed his takeover of Wednesday.
