Newcastle United striker Shola Ameobi believes his side must add to the squad over the summer transfer window, according to

The forward, who is out of contract in the summer at St. James Park, has urged owner Mike Ashley to back current manager Alan Pardew and allow him to bring in new faces to the current squad.

He said: “We have limited resources at the moment and when we lose one or two key players it hurts the team badly.

”That is what the manager has had to put up with, unfortunately. It is something the club have to put right for next season.

“We need quality players and we need a quality squad as well. This has all been brought out to a lot of people now but we, as players, knew that. I think the fans are getting to see that now."

Ameobi has made 23 appearances this season, and is hopeful of a place in the Nigerian World Cup squad, despite only scoring once for the Magpies so far in the campaign.

The 32-year-old has been at the club since 1995, and has progressed through the youth ranks, managing to score 52 goals in 309 appearances.

Despite being born in Nigeria he has represented England at U-21 level, making 20 appearances and scoring seven goals.
