SHOLA Ameobi and Tony Pulis could soon be reunited after the former Newcastle United striker reportedly agreed a deal with West Bromwich Albion.

Prior to leaving Newcastle last summer, Ameobi’s only experience away from St James’s Park was on a loan spell at Stoke City under Pulis in 2008.

And according to the Express and Star, the 33-year-old could again be set to play under the Welshman at West Brom.

Ameobi left Turkish side Gaziantep at the start of the year, and the newspaper claims he and the Baggies are now considering whether to “activate a deal” after a contract was agreed in principle.
