‘Too inconsistent’, ‘I’d keep him’ – Many Nottingham Forest fans react to decision on 29-year-old

The winger has been a regular feature for Forest over the last couple of seasons, racking up 81 appearances for the Reds since arriving on a free transfer from Bolton Wanderers in 2019.

Ameobi scored five goals and chipped in with nine assists as Sabri Lamouchi’s side narrowly missed out on a play-off place last season in the most heartbreaking of ways.

He was only able to add three goals to that tally this season, but on the whole, he was one of the Reds’ most threatening attacking outlets whenever he played.

Ameobi’s size makes him an awkward player to defend against. He doesn’t often need to burst into a sprint to beat his man, and appears to glide past his marker without even breaking a sweat.

This week, Chris Hughton made the decision to release the seven players out of contract, as the manager looks to rebuild his squad ahead of next season.

The Athletic claim that the delay in announcing the retained list was due to Ameobi, with the club weighing up a new deal or not. Having been injured for the final stages of the season, though, it is also reported that Forest may well consider re-signing Ameobi if he is still without a club.
