Ipswich have not had a £4million bid accepted for Newcastle striker Shola Ameobi, according to the player´s agent.

Reports suggested Town had won the race for the former England Under-21 international, with East Anglia rivals Norwich also interested in the 26-year-old.

The Tractor Boys have refused to make any comment but Ameobi´s agent Steven Denos dismissed the reports as "speculation".
