Ameobi Makes EPL History

Sammy Ameobi's goal seven seconds after coming on as a substitute in Newcastle United 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspurs made history as the fastest scored by a substitute in the league history from open play.

Ameobi was introduced before the start of the second half and scored straight from the kick-off for the half.

He ran behind the Tottenham Hotspurs defence to finish off a delightful through ball from Jack Colback to draw his team level after Emmanuel Adebayor had given Spurs the lead.

Debutant Ayoze Perez completed Newcastle United’s amazing comeback by scoring their second and winning goal in the 58th minute.

The goal was also a personal milestone for the lanky, pacy winger as it was his first ever goal in the English Premier League since his debut for the magpies in 2010.

Prior to his goal against Spurs Ameobi has only previously scored for Newcastle in the football league cup, a winning goal against Scunthorpe on 25 August 2011.

Presently, Ameobi is in the last eight months of his deal and with no offer yet from Newcastle his performances in their last two games means he won't be short of suitors if they fail to offer him fresh terms.

In January he will be free to discuss with interested parties in his services in view of a transfer in the summer as a free agent if Newcastle United fail to sanction a winter move.

So far he has made five appearances for them in the Premier league from a possible nine games this season.
